How can proper calf rearing add to your profits ? With scientific management practices good breeds of calves become adult cows in 2 years. They fetch a good price in the market and add to your income by producing milk. Proper care of calves and heifers creates a strong “next generation” of animals in your farm and builds a strong foundation for regular income.

So what does scientific management of calves mean ? Calf rearing management starts when the fetus is still in the mother’s womb. From providing the right care just after the calves are born to feeding the right quantity and quality of colostrum a number of processes go into ensuring that there are no calf mortalities in your farm.

If you want your calves to be healthy and become productive by around 2 years, then you will have to feed suitable feed and fodder as per their body weight. At the same time you have to ensure that you spend optimally so that you get the desired growth in body weight at the lowest cost possible.
