Data from calf studies conducted over the past 20 yr has shown that preweaning nutrient intake, from milk or milk replacer, can have profound effects on development of the calf that enhance first lactation and lifetime productivity. Many of the studies show positive but not significant effects of preweaning nutrition on long-term productivity, primarily due to a lack of power, usually due to inadequate animal numbers per treatment. Meta-analyses were conducted using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis… CONTINUE READING
