Do not switch feeds if things are going well. Sometimes just starting a new bag of the same stuff causes problems. Make sure its not rancid. In my experience some calves go through periods of erratic intke and then straighten out in a few days. Ensure all feeding, mixing and storage equipment is very clean to avoid off flavors.
If calf coughs after feeding hold bottle lower so that his head is at least level when nursing.
