Good Article on Energy for Calves

In a recent issue of Progressive Dairyman the article appears,
"Focus on energy sources for optimal calf performance." [Dr. Tom Earlywine, pp 15-16, September 12, issue 15]

He reviews how much energy calves need for selected rates of gain and under temperatures from 68F to -20F. An example is given for a newborn calf at 32F. 

In addition to this he reviews sources of energy in milk/milk replacers and talks about a desirable protein-to-energy balance.
