Abstract
Twenty-four Friesian male calves between 5 and 11 days old, in 8 groups, were given milk substitutes reconstituted at 10 or 20%, at 8, 12, 16 or 20% of liveweight for the 10% concentration and 6, 8, 10 or 12% of liveweight at the 20% concentration until all calves were established on their appropriate treatment within 10 to 14 days. Weaning was by reducing milk substitute between 29 and 35 days. Chopped dried grass was offered freely before and for 3 weeks after weaning.
