Effect of different milk feeding strategies on growth, feed-efficiency, blood immunoglobulin level and disease incidence of crossbred calves



Effect of different milk feeding strategies on growth, feed-efficiency, blood immunoglobulin level and disease incidence of crossbred calves



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 76(1): 95-98



This study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of 5 different feeding strategies employed to crossbred calves (n=25) during the first month of their life followed by controlled feeding until 84 days of age on the growth, feed efficiency, blood immunoglobulin level and incidence of diseases.
