Weaning and Updating Calf Milk Sheet/Board
Weaning calves & updating feeding chart
- Following the calf feeding program, update and wean according to plan.
- When weaning calves off milk, it is recommended to use a gradual or stepwise process, removing milk slowly over 1-2 weeks. This will allow the calf time to adjust to the lower level of milk and increase solid feed intakes accordingly. Be sure to monitor calf behaviour and meal intake over this time to identify any calves that may be struggling.
