Advances in the Determination of Nutrient Requirements of the Pre-weaned Dairy Calf
Molano, R.; Ortega, A.; Ross, D.; Drackley, J.; James, R.; Van Amburgh, M.
As feeding programs evolve to offer more liquid feed and better meet the calf’s biological potential for growth, a better understanding and quantification of calves’ nutrient requirements is necessary. This work describes new equations and coefficients for the estimation of energy, protein and amino acid requirements and utilization in the milk-fed dairy calf.
