More on Calf Starter Grain Intake

This short article by Maureen Hanson summarizes work by Dr. Dale Moore on calf starter intake.

The key points dealing with grain intake:
  1. Different levels of liquid feeds
  2. Disease
  3. Water availability
  4. Starter grain texture, formulation, freshness
  5. Calf housing, weather management
Also, you will find a link to an interesting online publication "How Much Starter Grain Should a Preweaned Dairy Calf be Eating," by Dr. Moore and Others.
