Survey of preweaning dairy calf-rearing practices in Czech dairy herds
|Kateg. publikace||Vědecké publikace impaktované|
The objective of this survey was to identify weak areas of dairy calf-rearing during the milk nutrition period in dairy herds, doing so for operations generally and also according to the individual breeds raised (Czech Fleckvieh and Holstein). Management of the Czech Fleckvieh breed was found to differ from the Holstein operations only in the duration of the colostrum feeding period and we observed a tendency for length of milk feeding to differ between the 2 breeds (9.1 wk for C and 10 wk for H). No other statistically significant differences were found between C and H operations. Research into calf-rearing during the preweaning period is one of the key elements for determining points of risk and identifying weaknesses and strengths in the area of feeding and management practices on dairy farms. Descriptions of weaknesses in calf-rearing practices provide opportunities for applying existing scientific and research findings in daily practice.
