There are important considerations from a milk feeding standpoint for calves on dairy farms in Northern New York’s cold weather climate. A study funded by the NNYADP and conducted by Miner Institute, shows the importance of best calf management practices in the winter season as temperatures decrease, across housing types, and as the requirements of calves increase for proper health and growth. This research evaluated how increasing nutrients supplied impacted or improved the growth and health of dairy calves on regional farms.
