Calf & Heifer Feeds

Raise Herd Improvements Rather than Herd Replacements With White Oak Mills’ CENTURY III Dairy Calf & Heifer Improvement Program

Proper feeding of dairy animals from birth to 23 months can prevent challenges down the road. Inadequately-fed calves and heifers grow poorly and fail to reach breeding weight at the desired age, resulting in later calving and less milk production. In fact, economic analysis indicates that heifers older than 23 months at first calving cost producers $50 per month, not including lost lifetime production.

White Oak views heifers as improvement animals rather than as replacements. Serving as the foundation of tomorrow’s lactating herd, heifers definitely are your most important investment for the future!

White Oak Mills’ CENTURY III Calf & Heifer Improvement Program is a comprehensive plan which includes high-quality White Oak feeds, nutrition, and management practices designed to help you effectively raise superior dairy animals. Flexible, convenient and cost-effective, the CENTURY III Calf & Heifer Improvement Program ensures dairy producers:

  • Strong, healthy herd-improvement animals
  • Proper growth rate so well-conditioned heifers can be moved into the milking herd at 22 to 23 months
  • Optimum profitability

CENTURY III Calf & Heifer Improvement Program General Management Tips:

  • Colostrum feeding is a must for raising healthy calves, since it contains essential and irreplaceable antibodies, which maintain the animals’ health. Feed 4 to 6 pounds (two quarts) of colostrum from older cows immediately after birth and 4 to 6 pounds again before the calf is nine hours old.
  • After receiving colostrum for 4days, calves should gradually be shifted to CENTURY III Milk Replacer, a high-quality product line which mixes well.
  • Wean calves off CENTURY III Milk Replacer when starter grain consumption reaches 1.5 to 2 pounds per day for three consecutive days, usually between 4 to 6 weeks of age.
  • Do not feed ensiled forages to calves younger than 5 months old.
  • Separate heifers into groups based on weight to maintain consistent, rapid development. Heifers should gain 1.6 to 2 pounds per day if properly fed.
  • Breed at age 13 to 14 months when heifers weigh between 800 to 850 pounds.
  • Provide fresh, clean water at all times.
  • Deworm animals twice a year, preferably during the spring and fall seasons.
  • Follow your veterinarian-recommended herd health program.
