INTRODUCTION







Weaning


is the removal of a suckling animal from the mother. But, what might not be so


obvious are all the stressors and impacts associated with weaning, both for the


calf and the cow. Weaning can also be stressful for the owner of the animals, especially


if the weaned calves are placed in a pen near a person’s bedroom window. As


animal managers, we should try and make weaning as stress-free as we can, while


keeping productivity and profitability in line with our goals (j.w. oltijen.


1998 et. al)







There


are many considerations for weaning, including time of weaning, preparation for


weaning, method of weaning, and post-weaning management. Different strategies


of weaning affect performance of the calf (market weight, health, etc.) and the


cow (reproductive efficiency, cull weights, health, etc.), and therefore can


affect profitability.
