You see how your calves grow on the outside – every inch, every pound. However, do you know how they are growing on the inside? Do they really need that much milk solids? Is a high-protein calf starter necessary? How soon should you introduce hay into their diet?

New research from a 5-year study, sheds light on these questions. The research confirms that following all three steps of a full potential program will result in a first lactation production increase of as much as 2,740 pounds of milk — compared to calves fed an above-average calf nutrition diet.
