Iron supply of veal calves. Part 1. Influence of 2 iron and copper levels on performance, health and meat colour of veal calves

Iron supply of veal calves. Part 1. Influence of 2 iron and copper levels on performance, health and meat colour of veal calves

Landwirtschaft Schweiz 4(1-2): 41-46

Groups of male Simmental veal calves, about 65 kg, were given whole milk and premix (iron, copper, magnesium, antibiotics) to 120 kg liveweight and whole milk, premix and dried skim milk until slaughter. Diets contained iron 20 and copper 2, 20 and 10, 50 and 2, or 50 and 10 mg/kg DM. Cu 2 and 10 mg/kg DM did not influence performance or meat colour. Compared with Fe 20, Fe 50 mg did not improve performance or health of the calves, but meat colour did not meet current market requirements.
