I did a search and am not finding an answer.... We just took delivery of 3 bottle calves that are ~ 3 weeks old. We've never had bottle calves before having always bought them at around 300 lbs. They are holstein X black Baldy calves. They are taking the bottle just fine but I am curious about what the selling farmer has been feeding. Thety have been given free choice alfalfa/grass mix and about a quart of sweet feed for all three each day. The calves are eating some hay and are eating the sweet feed up. The sweet feed is Sweet 18 calf starter. Is this the correct feed regimen for calves that are so young? I am concerned that alfalfa and sweet feed is too hot. Also, how much water would young calves like this drink? Thanks so much for any info. It's appreciated!
