Growth characteristics and feed efficiencies of the early weaned Brown-Swiss, Holstein-Friesian and Simmental calves reared in Turkey



Growth characteristics and feed efficiencies of the early weaned Brown-Swiss, Holstein-Friesian and Simmental calves reared in Turkey



Indian Journal of Dairy Science 47(4): 273-275



Growth characteristics, body weight gain and feed efficiencies of early weaned Holstein-Friesian (HF), Brown-Swiss (BS), and Simmental (S) calves reared in the eastern region of Turkey, where winter temperatures vary between 0 and -20 degrees C, were investigated. From birth 36 calves were allowed to suck from their dams for 2 days then bucket fed on whole milk at 8% of birth weight until weaning at 35 days old.
