Once-a-day milk or milk replacer feeding is not a new concept, but it is not widely adopted. Recently, researchers at Penn State University revisited this concept. They found that it improved starter intake and did not hurt calf growth or health. The practice also can cut calf-care labor needs. The twist, though, is to wait until calves reach two weeks of age to implement such a program. That’s when calves begin to rely on their developing rumens for energy.
