Alternative Housing: Raising Calves In Pairs
Almost every farm has at least one heifer at the bottom of the pecking order and last to eat at the feed bunk. The sub-par performance of these heifers results in a delay to breeding weight, and in turn, an increase in age at first calving. Recent research has shown that changes in calf management may help improve feeding and social behaviors. You may have heard of this system before—the buddy system and it works for calves!
