You may have heard about feeding bottle calves before, but did you know there was more to it than just giving them milk? Find out what else you should be doing and how long you should be doing it!
Some farmers will take the newborn calf immediately from its mother and put it in a pen with no regards to its health or future. This is very rare but still happens.
All calves are prone to a condition called scours, where basically bacteria in their stomach causes the calves to have diarrhea until they dehydrate and die.
I can’t say that the yogurt is the reason why they were so healthy but again, anything I can do to increase their odds is always a good thing. If you have some homemade yogurt in the fridge I encourage you to throw it in, it definitely won’t hurt.
