We have a 2 year old heifer that refused her calf. We tried everything to get her to accept it, but she didn't want any part of it and ended up snorting, charging and jumping the fence. She will go to the salebarn and we started bottle feeding the calf. Four days later we had a heifer that lost a calf, so we but her in the chute and got the orphan calf to nurse with no problem. It works great but she wont let it nurse unless she is in the chute. Would you just bottle feed the calf or continue to let him nurse with the heifer in the chute? How often should we let him nurse off her to get the nutrients he needs?
