Veal or Baby Beef
I am starting to work into this kind
of a program on my farm this fall. To
begin with, we will take the bull calves
and feed them out to about 200 pounds
and sell them as veal. If the veal
market should not prove satisfactory,
these calves can be carried right on
to dairy type baby beef and sold at
weights around 500 to 600 pounds.
If feed costs are favorable and
market conditions justify, they can go
on stiU further to be sold as beef in
the 1,000 pound class. Under this pro
gram all the bull calves produced from
my herd can be sold to advantage and
should increase the profit picture on
the dairy farm.
In connection with this same feeding
enterprise, dairy heifers that are being
kept for replacements can be given
the same kind of care and will be
grown out to better weights and will
come into the milking string in better
condition than those which have re
ceived ordinary feed and care.
I find that much of the production
potential of dairy cows is lost due to
poor feeding and poor management
during their first two years. In the
past I have been contracting for the
feeding and care of my replacement
heifers and have been very disap
pointed in the manner in which I get
The production of red meat as veal
or as dairy type beef will add diversi
fication and increase the profit poten
