Effect of weaning age and post-weaning nutrition on the growth of calves and the liveweight of their dams



Effect of weaning age and post-weaning nutrition on the growth of calves and the liveweight of their dams



Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 15(76): 581-586



Two similar trials were made in 1970-71 and 1971-72 on the management of autumn-calving cows and their calves on perennial pastures in Southern Australia. Cows with their 6-week calves were stocked at 1.5 cows/ha until the calves were 8 months old, when they were divided into 3 groups of 18, with equal numbers of each sex. Group 1 calves were weaned and left on half the original area of dry summer pasture to 10 months of age.
