    These early weaned , vaccinated calves I just got in November and have been treated for a cough with Penn. shot the day they came & I put them on Terra crumbles and switched to AS 700 after 10 days.

    What is the best bedding that you use for calves? Most affordable but provides a nice warm , dry enviornment for bedding down especially during cold and damp weather. It also has to be easy enough to clean out of the shelter. I am just looking for opinions on what you may use. Thanks
