Group feeding

According to the National Farm Animal Care Council’s “Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Veal Cattle,” calves must be grouped as young as possible, and not later than eight weeks. While housing calves individually can be beneficial for monitoring health, the risk of disease transmission is not lower than calves in small (less than ten), well-managed groups.

Automatic feeders
The greatest advantage of automated calf feeders is reduction in labour. However, you must remember you are still dealing with live animals and calves still need to be visually checked twice daily.
