How to achieve good weight gains with calves at grass



How to achieve good weight gains with calves at grass



Farm and Food Research 14(3): 90-92



Results of some experiments in the Irish Republic are summarized. It is shown that calves over 3-4 months old will gain up to 1 kg daily on good-quality pasture. Young calves in the first half of the grazing season should have about 50% more grass available to them than they actually need. Left-over grass should be constantly cleaned off by older stock or by topping.
