Calves are normally grown for a period of 70 to 90 days or until they achieve weaning weights of approximately 120kg per head. Two groups of 15 calves were monitored from 4 days old. One group was given 10mL per day of Mylo® in the same milk ration.
For comparison of weights between groups, live weights were corrected for calf ages at weaning. Average growth rate was estimated after deducting 38kg (average birth weight) from the live weight of each calf. The general health condition of the calves was observed and recorded.
