@muckymanor ,I wouldn't go every other day. The milk gets to be more of a habit for them, rather than nutritional. Keep watering it down. Then maybe move them on to new ground. I wouldn't skimp on the nuts either, Just when your on about weaning calves at this time of year. If you're going to rear calves next year, I'd be buying a lot earlier Feb/Mar. It's one great bonus of compact calving, all calves in or about the one size. I bought these ones last Saturday , bulls Feb and Mar born. 4@ €490 1 @ €440 Have to leaving a turn for the rearer at that.
