"Feed for More Than Maintenance"
January 2020 calf mgt newsletter
The primary points in this newsletter:
- · Maintenance = keep core body temperature at 101°F, replace cells, eat and breathe.
- · Growth = make new cells to support immunity and get bigger.
- · For our youngest calves, as environmental temperatures fall below 60°F they burn energy to maintain core body temperature – see bar chart on page one.
- · In order to improve immunity to replace protection from colostrum, our youngest calves need lots of energy beyond maintenance.
