Calves on Autofeeders Cost a Little More

The cost of raising dairy calves and replacement heifers is very significant on Wisconsin dairy farms.  Calculating the costs associate with raising dairy calves and heifers is an essential part of dairy business management.

In the Hoard’s Dairyman August article Calves on autofeeders cost a little more, UW-Extension St Croix County Agriculture Agent Ryan Sterry discusses the cost of feeding pre-weaned calves in an automated calf feeding system versus conventional, individual feeding system.
