In the first experiment calves between 7 and 14 days old were given reconstituted spray-dried skimmed milk until the start of weaning on day 22 or 29, and at each age weaning was completed in 7 or 14 days. Pelleted dried grass to appetite from the start of weaning was the only solid feed. In the second experiment 24 calves between 3 and 10 days old were given, in a factorial arrangement, milk substitute 12.5 or 25% of liveweight and 100 g dried grass long or pelleted, for 21 days.
