Abstract

Summary

  • Energy density is the key to limit feeding
  • Lactation increases energy needs considerably
  • Consider early weaning options
  • Confined calves must be able to reach water and feed
  • Limit fed cows need ample bunk space and a consistent feeding routine
  • Each producer needs to evaluate their resources and system options to see what might work best
  • As prices change systems should be reevaluated
