Calf Home

Welcome to Calf! Calf Notes is your source for pertinent, non-commercial and unbiased information on raising young dairy calves.

Be sure to read the latest Calf Note and visit the archives for previous articles. In addition, Calving Ease will provide an interesting perspective on the latest on calf and heifer rearing.

Calf Note #180 is now available. Calf Note #180 discusses the effects of age at 1st calving on lifetime milk production. As always, your comments are welcomed!

The December issue of Calving Ease is now available. This month, Sam discusses the essential elements of a "Calf Kitchen".

As many of you know, Calf Notes has had a bit of a hiatus recently. Life events, personal and business have kept me from writing as frequently as you (and I) would like. Hopefully, I can catch up over the next few months and continue to provide you with valuable calf and heifer rearing advice. Thanks for your understanding and support!
