Development of a calf suckling system using late lactating dairy cows as suckler cows during the milk-feeding period



Development of a calf suckling system using late lactating dairy cows as suckler cows during the milk-feeding period



Livestock farming systems: more than food production Proceedings of the 4th International Symposium, Foulum, Denmark 22-23 August 1996: 287-291



Studies of calf suckling systems were carried out on the dairy herd at Research Centre Foulum (Denmark) and on 2 private organic dairy herds. In the research herd, special focus was directed towards the behaviour of the calves. 20 cows in late-lactation ('aunts') were confronted with 1 calf each.
