Feeding calves is one of my everyday jobs on the farm.
Even though I've fed more than a few bottles, I still think it's fun!
Each calf receives a two quart bottle of milk twice a day for the
first three days to make sure they receive all of their mother's
colostrum. At three days we teach them to drink from a bucket
and continue to feed milk and add grain to their daily diet.
We monitor and observe each calf closely for any
problems and make sure they receive good nutrition.
that are the future of our family dairy farm.
so farmers make it a priority to get them off to a healthy start.
