Calf and Heifer Feeding and management Excerpt :

From birth to first calving, the replacement heifer undergoes tremendous changes anatomically as well as in feeding and management practices. The calf changes from being a pseudo-monogastric to a full ruminant within a period of two months. During the same period, the calf is fed colostrum, milk, or milk replacer, and starter with or without hay. Notably, the lifetime milk production and health of a dairy cow is highly dependent on early life nutrition and management of the calf and, subsequently, the heifer. Hence, animal scientists continue to investigate critical areas such as colostrum feeding, the level of liquid feeding, gut microbial succession, energy and protein levels, housing, health management, and their interactions with the animal in an effort to help dairy producers raise successful and sustainable dairy enterprises.

It offers practical advice on buying cattle, marketing methods for particular types of cattle and specifications for markets such as domestic supermarket, butcher shops and hotels, Japan, Korea and US manufacturing. Cattle handling and carrying out necessary husbandry practices such as castration and vaccination, herd health, reproductive management, nutrition, carrying capacity, supplementary feeding through normal feed shortages or drought are also explored. Facilities such as fences, yards and water supply, which have a large impact on ease of management, are discussed in detail. Various breeds of cattle including the suitability of newer breeds such as lowlines are discussed and comparative ratings of economic traits are given. The book includes a calendar of operations to assist with timing and coordination of all the activities associated with breeding and raising cattle in southern Australia. This new edition completely updates the financial and marketing information and expands on the systems of beef production, breeds, breed management, stock handling, supplementary feeding and drought management. It updates and expands on the NLIS (ear tagging) requirements, and includes a chapter on the importance of soil health and fertility."--Provided by publisher.
