Calves to Pasture
Experience has shown that
spring calves do best If fed In the
barn during the first summer.
Young calves may be turned out
of doors for exercise, sunlight and
;ome green feed, but they should
not get the large part of their
feed from pasture. After they are
mx months old, pasture feeding
may be Increased, says Better
Dairy Calves.
From six months to a year of
ago, two to four pounds of grain
should be fed each calf In addi
tion to his pasture roughage, says
this authority. When calves gra?
on old, mature grass the grain
ration may be decreased.
