Use to raise a lot on dairy cattle that were not giving enough milk to be profitable. Would keep the calves in a small pen and bring the cow to them twice a day. After calves learned to nurse her and she accepted them would move them to a small corral for about a week then turn out into a pasture. Had 30-40 calves at a time nursing cows. Eventually just went to bottle feeding.Sniper338":1xrkaary said:How rough is it getting a dairy cow to put calves on vs bottle feeding?
Id imagine its probably all up to the cow and how receptive she is taking calves on?
