Dietary energy intake and utilization by young dairy calves Johnson, Peter Thewlis Clarkson () Thesis (Ph. Agric.) -- University of Stellenbosch,   The also volume covers dry matter intake, including how to predict feed intake.

It addresses the management of lactating dairy cows, utilization of fat in calf and lactation diets, and calf and heifer replacement nutrition. In addition, the many useful tables include updated nutrient composition for commonly used feedstuffs.

The influence on intake, growth and energy utilization of giving undiluted or diluted fresh or reconstituted skimmed milks to appetite was studied with calves from 2 to 22 days of age.

Diets were (a) fresh skimmed milk, (b) reconstituted skimmed milk equal in metabolizable energy to (a), (c) diet (a) diluted with parts of water and (d) diet (b) diluted with parts of by: 4.

Energy and protein re quirements of the calf and alteration of the energy:protein ratio have been investigated in preweaned dairy calves (2, 15, 16). Lodge and Lister (16) reported increased n:lrogen retention and efficiency of protein utilization (biological value) in calves by adding energy sources, ei ther glucose or butterfat, to whole by:   The influence on intake, growth, and energy utilization of feeding undiluted and diluted fresh and reconstituted instantized nonfat milks ad libitum w.

In contrast, SF intake will contribute to energy supply of calves, whereas increased energy supply from lactose and fat (Gerrits et al., ) and timing of energy relative to protein availability. The calf begins to lose body condition, its hair coat begins to look rough, and it develops a "hay belly." Energy intake has been restricted with this high- hay diet to the point that even frame development is reduced.

Feeding calves a high-grain diet with limited high-quality forage after weaning allows for rapid weight gain and frame development. Introduction. Encouraging solid feed intake is a key objective of dairy calf management during the milk-feeding stage.

Ingestion of solid feed facilitates the transition of the young calf to a functioning ruminant, because fermentation of solid feed stimulates the growth and development of the rumen (Baldwin et al., ).Therefore, insufficient solid feed intake may negatively affect weight.

The influence on growth rate and efficiency of feed utilization by calves from 1 through 22 days of age was compared when diets of whole milk, nonfat milk and colostrum were offered ad libitum and whole milk was fed at 9% of body weight per day.

Body weight gains averaged, and kg on these feeding regimes. The also volume covers dry matter intake, including how to predict feed intake.

It addresses the management of lactating dairy cows, utilization of fat in calf and lactation diets, and calf and heifer replacement nutrition. In addition, the many useful tables include updated nutrient composition for commonly used feedstuffs. supplement the intake of a calf fed lb of a CP:fat milk replacer at a temperature of 32 °F increases the energy allowable gain to lb/d, just slightly above maintenance.

Feeding more of an appropriately balanced diet to meet the requirements for both energy and protein allowable gain would. ingredients in the diet, ruminal conditions, and health of animals will affect the actual energy gained from a diet.

Energy Requirements The NE requirement for maintenance of mature dairy cattle is assumed to be Mcal/kg BW This value was taken from a requirement determined at Mcal/kg BW 2.

Dairy Cow Behavior and Impact on Dairy Cattle Nutrition Management Dairy Cow Behavior Dairy cows have evolved from originally ruminating prey animals. Rumination and the fermentation which takes place in the rumen allows dairy cows/ruminants to turn low quality forages and human food by-products into high quality food: milk and meat.

Breed and Nutritional Effects and Interactions on Energy Intake, Production and Efficiency of Nutrient Utilization in Young Bulls, Heifers and Lactating Cows.

Acta Agriculturae Scandinavica, Section A — Animal Science: Vol. 45, No. 2, pp. Milk-fed calves received more energy and protein, but preweaning average daily gain, starter intake, and feed efficiency were higher in calves fed milk replacer.

In the second trial two milk replacers were fed at either a variable or fixed rate each day to provide pounds of dry matter. In lactating dairy cattle, milk production (energy expen- diture) usually peaks 4 to 8 weeks postpartum, and peak DMI (energy intake) lags until 10 to 14 weeks postpartum (National Research Council, It has been debated whether milk production is driven by intake or intake is driven by milk production.

The study investigated the performance response of different dietary protein and energy levels of Nili-Ravi buffalo calves. Sixty buffalo calves of 12–15 months of age and similar body weight ( ± 14 kg) were divided in to 12 groups, five animals in each group, according to 4 × 3 factorial arrangements.

Twelve rations were formulated containing four levels of crude protein (CP; %, This indicated that the intake of energy was sufficient to meet the requirement of calves growing at g per d.

However, CP intake was around % of the stipulated standard (Kearl, ). Cattle with greater mature body weight and frame size con-sume more forage compared to smaller frame cattle.

Lactating cows consume considerably more of the same quality forage compared to gestating cows (Figure 3). Additionally, fleshy cattle 1 Figure The relationship of diet digestibility to dry matter intake in growing calves. Source: NRC. Under this system, targeted rates of gain for calves of the large dairy breeds are ~– g/day for the first 3–4 wk of life.

This requires a dry-matter intake of – g/day; ~ g of this is supplied from liquid feed, which equates to ~4 L of milk or reconstituted milk replacer/day for calves weighing 40–50 kg at.

Animal Feed Science and Technology, Vol. Issue., p. Fats are another source of energy in beef cattle diets. When cattle consume too much fat, feed intake may fluctuate, and scouring (diarrhea) may occur.

Conservative estimates of maximum recommended fat levels in beef cattle diets are 6 percent for mature cattle and 4 percent for young, growing cattle. Urea with molasses and starch, casein, and fish meal with maize gluten meal were compared with a urea control as different nitrogen and energy sources in straw diets fed ad libitum to four mature non-lactating Swedish Red and White cows in a 4 × 4 latinsquare design.

Cows fed fish meal with maize gluten meal had increased neutral detergent (ND) fibre intake, digestibility, and total digestion. Carbohydrates (CHO) are the major source of energy for rumen microorganisms and the single largest component (60 to 70%) of a dairy cow's diet. They represent the major component of net energy for support of maintenance and milk production.

Carbohydrate nutrition influences the composition of milk as precursors for lactose, fat, and protein. • After birth calf can digest protein in milk, by 14 d calves can digest non-milk proteins.

• After 4 weeks of age microbes in the rumen may digest some feed. Environment on Energy and Protein Needs. • Calves use energy to maintain body temperature • Hot: pant and sweat to cool off, will drop intake. Improved health and nutrition of dairy calves are important factors for maintaining viable and sustainable dairy farms and decreasing use of antibiotics for calf rearing.
