Whole milk or milk replacer for veal calves - influence on fattening and slaughter performance, meat quality and profitability



Whole milk or milk replacer for veal calves - influence on fattening and slaughter performance, meat quality and profitability



Bodenkultur 52(3): 233-245



In a feeding trial with 120 male calves the effect of ration (whole milk (VM) or milk replacer (MA)), slaughter weight (110 or 140 kg LW) and breed (Simmental (SI), Brown Swiss (BS) or Holstein Friesian (HF)) on the fattening and slaughter performance as well as meat quality and economics of veal calves was studied. Daily gains did not differ significantly between the feeding groups but tended to be lower when the calves were fattened with whole milk up to 140 kg LW.
