Effects of temperature of milk replacer and method of feeding on the performance of Holstein veal calves



Effects of temperature of milk replacer and method of feeding on the performance of Holstein veal calves



Canadian Journal of Animal Science 52(4): 659-664



In a factorial design 66 male Holstein calves, 3 to 5 days old, were pail-fed on milk replacer at 37 deg C twice a day, at 10% of bodyweight for the first week. After that, milk replacer was provided at 37 deg , 18 deg or 1.5 deg each by pail-feeding at 10 to 15% of bodyweight or with nipple feeding to appetite. The calves fed on cold milk replacer gained less and took longer to reach 100 kg liveweight than the others.
