Rapport Instituut voor Veeteeltkundig Onderzoek ' Schoonoord' (B-349): 27 pp.

For 11 weeks, 3 groups of 15 male Black Pied calves, housed singly, were given milk substitutes 45 kg and to appetite a mixture of pelleted concentrate and maize silage at 50:50, 60:40 or 70:30 on DM basis. Thereafter till end of 235-day fattening period, with 5 calves per pen, no replacer was supplied. Intake of feed mixture decreased from group 1 to 3 and feed costs increased. Daily weight gains were 1081, 1164 and 1200 g. Carcass yields reached 1758, 1906 and 1966 florins.
