The optimum slaughter weight of veal calves. The influence of the price of newly born calves, feedstuffs, veal, feed conversion and housing system on labour income and slaughter weight

The optimum slaughter weight of veal calves. The influence of the price of newly born calves, feedstuffs, veal, feed conversion and housing system on labour income and slaughter weight

Publikatie, Proefstation voor de Rundveehouderij, Schapenhouderij en Paardenhouderij, Netherlands (44): 50

Veal production in the Netherlands is a subsidiary enterprise of dairy farming, making use of newly born calves, skimmed milk powder and whey powder. About 80% of veal calves are fattened on contract to feed manufacturers. Economic and technical data which affect slaughter weight are examined, as are the effect of housing system on labour income and on optimum slaughter weight, and the effect of changing feed conversions and feed composition.
