AMOUNT OP MILK FOR CALVES
It Varies with the Capacity of tht
The amount of milk for calves
varies greatly with tho capacity o
tho calf to take IL Tho amount
recommended to bo fod nlso varies
Rrcatly, sonto authorities recommend
Ing twlco as much as othors. With
roforenco to this question It will bo
correct to say that during tho earllor
weeks of tho llfo of tho calf no ad
Juncts will be found superior or equal
to milk. It Is also true at tho samo
time that as soon as calves can utlllzo
other food to Rood advantage, It will
bo found cheaper than milk. It fol
lows, therefore, that tho calves should
bo given all tho milk that they can
digest properly until they can mako a
good uso of ether substitutes that will
tako the place of milk.
But care should bo taken not to
overfeed milk, good as It is, cautions
tho Orange Judd farmer. This can
be easily done. Tho Indications of
overfeeding soon show themselves in
deranged digestion, and such derange
ment Is commonly Indicated by scour-
Ings. Tho moment that such an indl
cation appears tho amount of milk fed
should bo reduced.
It Is very evident from what haa
been said that It will not bo possible
to name tho amounts of milk to feed,
mat win oe suitable for calves of all
ages, but It may be possible to state
averago amounts. It would seem safe
to say that during tho first week of
tho life of a calf It will safely tako
from six to eight pounds of milk, the
latter quantity being fed at the close
of the week. Strong, vigorous calvos
may tako as much as ten pounds, but
ordinarily the smaller quantity Is the
safer one. Then add one pound of
mtlk every week with advanco In the
ago of tho calf until it Is, say, ten
