These feeding instructions are a guide for calves entering the unit at 40-42kg live weight. The instructions have to be adjusted according to live weight and the breed of calf. It is advisable to supply the calves with electrolytes for their first feed, especially when calves come from market or have travelled for a long period of time.

Introduce coarse mixture or calf pellets and water after 4 days. Calves should eat at least 1kg coarse mixture or calf pellets per day before weaning at 5-6 weeks. Weaning can be achieved by reducing the concentration by 50% every other day over 6 days or by reducing the availability of milk gradually over 6 days.
