Abstract Weaning and postweaning reductions in ADG in calves fed large amounts of milk or milk replacers (MR) are common. The purpose of these trials was to determine the effect of feeding a high CP MR at different rates on ADG, starter intake, and efficiency. In trial 1, a 26% CP, 17% fat MR was fed at either 0.681 kg/ d (P681), and then stepped up to 0.794 kg/d by d 8 (P794), or stepped up to 0.908 kg/d by d 15 (P908). In trial 2, P681 and P908 were fed. In trial 3, calves were fed either… CONTINUE READING
