From birth to first calving, the replacement heifer undergoes tremendous changes anatomically as well as in feeding and management practices. The calf changes from a pseudo-mogastric to a full ruminant within a period of two months. During the same time, the calf is fed colostrum, milk or milk replacer, and starter with or without hay. By knowing and anticipating the changing nutritional needs of the cow, producers can plan their feeding programs and lower feed costs. Cows use the nutrients provided to them for bodily processes in the following order: 1) maintenance - keep alive and moving, 2) lactation - providing milk for the calf, 3) growth - including weight gain, and 4.
Consistency in calf feeding is commonly recommended, but there is not much research on the effect of consistent or inconsistent feeding programs on calf performance. One study included two experiments using milk and milk replacer to investigate the effects of inconsistent nutrient intake. in feeding. Feed is conserved became sheltered animals require less feed to maintain the animal heat, and waste due to wind and dampn~s is reduced to a minimum. permits the feeding to be done in comfort and without exposure. It allows the animals to feed .
Backgrounding Calves on Co-products As cow-calf producers look to add value to their calf crop, backgrounding or pre-condition of cattle may be one potential management option, write Matt Hersom and Jacquline Wahrmund.

The experiment was costing us over dollars just in milk. This is a significant amount for us, since we did not get any support from corporate sponsors. The weight of the two calves was basically equal at the beginning of the feeding trial.
At the end the raw milk calf weight kg and the pasteurized milk calf weight kg. "Calf feeding experiments" by James Wilson, G. Patrick et by: 4. Cows with high milk production potential need abundant high-quality feed to meet lactation requirements, which makes any body condition change during lactation very difficult and expensive.
Body condition changes should be made before calving, aiming for a calving BCS of 5 or greater ( to 6 for first calf heifers) to ensure timely Size: KB. Designed for kids ages 9 and up, this friendly and encouraging guide introduces children to the fun and rewarding experience of raising a calf.
With age-appropriate instructions, clear photographs, and easy-to-read diagrams, Heather Smith Thomas covers the basics of choosing the right experiment in calf feeding book, feeding and housing, showing, and calf health care/5(11).

The 4-H Bucket Calf Project is designed to introduce youth 5 to 18 years old to beef and dairy 4-H projects. By allowing youth the experience of working with a smaller, less intimidating size of animal, they become comfortable with beef and dairy cattle as they grow.
This project is designed to reach completion in one calendar Size: KB. Calf Rearing is recognized as one of the most informative and accessible guides on the subject, covering growth, nutrition, health and behavior, with descriptions of various calf raising systems and facilities.
John Moran, an expert in the field, also gives considerable coverage to calf welfare, post weaning management and calf communication.4/5(1). These books are designed to keep readers abreast of the rapid developments in feeding and nutrition. These developments have resulted in changes in diets, the use of new feed processing methods, improved use of by-product feeds, and more supplementation with minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and nonprotein nitrogen compounds.
The book is organized into four parts. Part I focuses on the nutrient requirements of beef cattle. Calf diagnosis and Disease Prevention Introduction In order to identify potentially sick calves careful observation at, and just before, feeding times is crucial.
Prevention of disease in calves should be a priority in all calf rearing enterprises and involves measures to limit the exposure of the calf File Size: 1MB. In Feeding and Management of the Dairy Calf: Birth to 6 Months, prepared by Buelon Moss, extension animal scientist; Dale Coleman, associate professor, and James Floyd, extension veterinarian, at Auburn University, “a calf should consume at least two pounds of grain per day before it is weaned.”.
In this video, calf management has been explained in detail. As today's calf will be tomorrow's cows so they need a significant amount of care and management. Imtiaz is.
How to Feed Milk Replacer to a Calf Milk replacer can be fed in two ways: through a bottle or from a pail or bucket. Bottle Feeding Calves Milk Replacer Very young calves are usually bottle-fed because they are too young to train. The nipple of a bottle resembles the teat of a mother cow, and the natural instinct to suckle should kick in once the calf recognizes the bottle as its food source.
Offer the calf a special starter feed when you place the calf in a pen. Feed only a small amount, and increase the rate of feeding as the calf’s appetite increases. Change feed daily, and feed what’s refused to older calves.
A good calf starter (with about 20 percent crude protein) includes: Coarsely ground corn 50 lb. Lighter calf birth weights (al-though calving difficulty won’t be reduced).
Lower calf survival. Lower milk production and calf growth. Delayed estrus—this means a later calf next year and sub-sequent reduced weaning weights. Table 3 shows the nutritional requirements for an 1,pound. beef cow by period. WeatherFile Size: KB. Call to talk to a Reliance feed specialist.

This book is intended as a reference book for animal scientists and veterinarians. A significant portion of the market is as a classroom text for courses devoted to bovine nutrition.

Dairy Cattle Feeding and Nutrition was designed to provide information needed by those interested in the feeding and nutrition of dairy cattle. It contains basic information for students in courses on feeds and feeding, dairy cattle production, and animal nutrition. The experiment was applied on 4-days-old calves after colostrum feeding and weaned while calves were 56 days old.

In experiment 1, a total of 32 calves were randomly assigned at 7 d of age to texturized starter feed (containing rolled barley, corn, and oats) without straw, texturized starter feed with chopped.
