Young calves require energy for normal body functions such as digestion, respiration and heat production, as well as for growth. during the first three weeks of life when starter intake is minimal, the energy available to the calf is directly proportionate to the supply of milk or milk replacer. Milk replacers are formulated to ensure they deliver enough energy (from fat and sugar) to fuel growth whilst ensuring that the energy content is not too high to help the transition onto starter feed.
