Ways To Raise Better Calves

Calf management is an important factor affecting the efficiency of livestock. Calf productivity and health have an immediate impact on growth rates which primarily determine if or not a calf rearing business is profitable.

Since smart calf rearing results in the benefits of healthy calves, it is important to ensure that calves health and growth continue to be a top priority.

To increase your growth rate, pay attention to the following:

1. Feeding – at least 6-8 liters per day for about 2 to 3 weeks, depending on calf factors such as breeds etc. It was important to pay attention to the importance of getting up to 8 liters of calf a day as soon as possible and when the calf was ready for it. Reaching high nutrient levels as quickly as possible is essential for growth and disease-fighting energy.

2.For calf growth, the temperature is important for the growth rate – the warmer the better the growth rate. Make sure that the bedding level is good and dry.

3. Hygiene – More frequent cleaning leads to better growth rates and a lower risk of disease. Also, keep in mind that mixing older and younger animals is not recommended, as they are more likely to develop pneumonia, which can have a long-term impact on growth rates and productivity.

Well cared for calves have a lower risk of disease. Making the right decisions not only has a positive impact on profits but also results in happier, healthier, and more productive animals that will thrive for a lifetime.
