Early weaning of replacement Friesian calves: effect on post-weaning growth and subsequent productive and reproductive performances



Early weaning of replacement Friesian calves: effect on post-weaning growth and subsequent productive and reproductive performances



Zootecnica e Nutrizione Animale 17(2): 77-87



Performance was studied in 112 Holstein-Friesian calves given milk substitute 26.6 in 100 meals or 15.8 kg in 55 meals to weaning at 70 and 50 days old, respectively. Calves were given in addition a weaning mixture based on maize to appetite. Mean daily gain and DM intake of calves to 70 days after weaning were not affected by treatment. Intake of milk substitute was 10 kg/day less in early weaned calves.
