Effect of three systems of artificial rearing with early weaning on development of Swiss Brown X zebu calves



Effect of three systems of artificial rearing with early weaning on development of Swiss Brown X zebu calves



Arquivos da Escola de Veterinaria, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais 25(3): 221-233



Thirty Swiss Brown X zebu calves, 21 of them male, were suckled for 7 days, then divided into 3 groups until 98 days of age. The first 2 were weaned at 56 and the third at 35 days of age. The first group had a limited amount of whole milk, 3 kg for one week, then 4 kg for two weeks, reduced gradually to 1 kg. The second and third groups had 1 kg whole milk for a week, also a milk substitute of dried skimmed milk and maize meal with bone meal, Aurofac, vitamins and minerals.
