Plan Your Forage Utilization For The Coming Year
Now that most crops are in storage it’s time to plan the forage utilization for the coming year. It is tempting to rely on previous experience in determining forage needs. However, this can lead to some costly management mistakes.

How Much, How Soon?
Traditional calf feeding programs have fed calves 2 quarts of milk or milk replacer twice daily with weaning sometime between 6 and 12 weeks of age. This is based upon the concept that limiting energy from milk stimulates early intake of dry feed which favors earlier weaning and lower cost. However, this practice is unique when compared to feeding behavior of all other mammals in which the young consume milk at will from their dam. More liberal milk or milk replacer feeding programs for preweaned dairy calves have gained favor with the adoption of acidified free choice and computer controlled autofeeders. With the acidified free choice milk feeding systems there is no limit to how much calves can consume. However, there is a tendency for other feeding systems to gradually increase the liquid diet over days or weeks. The concern is that allowing the calf to consume large quantities of milk or milk replacer will cause digestive stress and diarrhea.

It Has Been A Great Ride!
As I reflect upon my career I find that the most important things have been the people during my 40+ years in Blacksburg. It seems like yesterday that I arrived at Virginia Tech to begin my graduate studies.
