Weaning Dairy Calves Resource

Great review of what we should know but may not be practicing when weaning dairy calves!

See the September Kentucky Dairy Notes issue.  Click Here for Dairy Notes

In this issue Mickayla Myers and others makes these points about weaning dairy heifers:
  • Weaning off milk/milk replacer and changing feed: take your time - make changes slowly.
  • Housing: think carefully about grouping to reduce competition, give careful thought to ventilation
  • Nutrition: she has reminders about water, hay feeding, and feed bunk accessibility.
Good to be reminded in a quick survey of these essential management points. 

If you have not been to University of Kentucky Dairy Notes before this is your chance to visit this interesting site with a minimum of effort. Enjoy.
