Brought to you by Merck. Watch its U.S. Dairy Farmers Care video.

The webinar reviews calf growth and subsequent milk yield data from both research trials and on-farm studies and demonstrates the strong impact of early calf nutrition. Further, components of colostrum, other than IgGs, appear to be important in altering feed efficiency prior to and after weaning.
