The effects of milk feeding on the pre weaning and post weaning growth of calves and on stomach development at weaning



The effects of milk feeding on the pre weaning and post weaning growth of calves and on stomach development at weaning



Journal of Agricultural Science 87(2): 357-363



The pre-weaning and post-weaning gain, carcass production and stomach development of calves fed 4 levels of whole milk (8%, 10%, 12% and 14% of live weight daily) was studied in 2 experiments. Calves had access to pasture at all times and were weaned at 12 wk. Pre-weaning gain, weaning live weight and carcass weight at weaning all increased as the quantity of milk increased. At the 14% level, male calves reached heavier weaning live weights and produced heavier carcasses than females. Reticulo-rumen weight, when expressed as a percentage of total stomach weight, was significantly reduced with increased milk feeding. Calves reared on the higher quantities of milk gained more slowly after weaning, this being attributed to their poorer reticulo-rumen development at weaning.
