This study examined effects of resistance to milk flow and the provision of hay on the duration of nutritive sucking and subsequent nonnutritive sucking by dairy calves. In a series of four experiments, 12 male Holstein calves were individually fed milk from an artificial teat. Resistance to milk flow was varied by adjusting the orifice size within the milk supply tube. Using a Latin square design, each calf was fed the same quantity of milk using four orifice sizes (one per day for 4… CONTINUE READING
