Effect of milk feeding frequency on the growth characteristics and feed efficiencies of Brown-Swiss calves



Effect of milk feeding frequency on the growth characteristics and feed efficiencies of Brown-Swiss calves



Indian Journal of Animal Production and Management 10(4): 118-122



Brown-Swiss calves (BS) born in winter and early spring were used to evaluate the effects of whole milk feeding frequency (once-a-day or twice-a-day) prior to weaning. Factors evaluated were growth, feed conversion efficiency and body measurement of calves raised under the cold environmental conditions of Eastern Turkey. Average daily weight gain was not influenced by treatment. Weight at birth, weaning, and 4 months old was not affected by milk feeding frequency.
