When to Wean a Bottle Fed Calf?

Answer

Bottle-fed calves can be weaned after one month of age. Weaning can be stressful, many veterinarians suggest that vaccinations be given 3 to 4 weeks prior to weaning and that deworming be done after weaning. You can start by considering the fingers in the bucket method. This method allows for a natural transition from bottle nursing to bucket drinking.
