Calf Nutrition is a chapter from the book Raising Dairy Replacements.
From birth to three months of age is the most sensitive rearing period for the young calf. With biological, environmental, and nutritional stressors, the success of this first rearing phase depends on calf managers paying special attention to detail. Among the most important is establishing a sound calf nutrition program.
