Feeding Replacement Heifers Farming Note

Replacement heifers are one of the most valuable assets but also biggest costs to a farm. Physical development is more important than age at first calving for a successful first lactation, so it is vital to feed youngstock in a way that will produce excellent growth rates and set up an animal for a long, productive life.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Age and costs at first calving
  • Diet formulation
  • Winter ration options
  • Heifers at grass

Issued November 2013.
