Regardless of the rearing system chosen, the calves must always have constant access to fresh water and be given a high-quality starter feed. Regardless of the calf rearing system chosen, attention should be paid, especially in the first weeks of life, to proper feeding. Calves should drink from buckets with a teat with holes that allow for a long time to let them produce the right amount of saliva. In addition to many valuable properties, saliva also contains an enzyme necessary for fat digestion, which reduces the risk of diarrhea.
