The topic of Calf Note #166 is "bias in decision making."

In the Calf Note, Jim Quigley, Calf Notes author, uses accelerated milk feeding as "an example of how we expose bias in decision making."

Quigley explains: "This Calf Note isn’t about accelerated milk feeding. It’s about bias, and how we defend our paradigms – usually to our detriment. To make the correct decision, it’s essential to evaluate information dispassionately and be willing to adjust our understanding of things based on new information."

Interesting--I'm just starting to learn about accelerated milk feeding programs. Got a lot of glowing data from Cornell faculty a few days ago. Then read some of Jim Quigley's earlier posts recommending against it. So it is good to hear Mr. Quigley admit his bias. I'd like to see Mr Quigley's research results to compare to those coming out of universities. I'm trying to keep an open mind...
