Milk Feeding

The method of feeding milk to calves is critical. The right way is to imitate the natural suckling which can be achieved by use of a bottle with a nipple or a bucket with a nipple placed at a height and not feeding directly from a bucket. This ensures milk will go directly to the abomasum and not the rumen which is not well-developed at this time. The oesophageal groove closes when the calf is drinking from top thus preventing milk from going to the rumen, and vice versa. If milk goes to the undeveloped rumen, the calf will have scours, malnutrition, very low weaning weight.

Advantages of the Calf feeding and drinking buckets

These animals are nicknamed bucket calves because they are fed with a bucket or a bottle with a nipple until they are weaned. … It is best if the newborn calf is fed colostrum for the first few days. This is milk produced by the mother cow and has antibodies that the calf needs. A good rule of thumb is to feed a calf 10 percent of its body weight in milk replacer per day. How long do you normally bucket or bottle feed? You bottle feed calves till you can get them to drink out of a bucket. And you bucket feed them until they are two months old.
