> How old does a calf need to be
> before weaning? around seven months old. some cows will wean their own calves and some won't. the most important thing is the cow needs the time to build herself up before she calves again, about three months is good.

Bottle fed or nursing? Bottle fed, when tey are eating around 2 lbs a day of quality calf starter grain, 4 to 8 weeks. Nursing, you can actually wean by the same criteria as a bottle calf if you are in one of the drought areas, but the calves have to be well into a creep ration at the time.
