The protein requirement of the ruminant calf II Further studies on the effect of protein content of the concentrate mixture on the performance of calves weaned at an early age



The protein requirement of the ruminant calf II Further studies on the effect of protein content of the concentrate mixture on the performance of calves weaned at an early age



Anim Prod1: 23-33



Eighty-four Friesian heifer calves were used in 2 experiments (Experiments 4 and 5) to study the protein requirement of the ruminant calf to 12 weeks of age. The calves were weaned at 5 weeks of age and given a concentrate containing one of several protein levels, together with hay and water. In Experiment 4, the effect of changing the protein content of the concentrates at 8 weeks of age under ad libitum feeding conditions was studied.
