n The Dairy Mail - Rearing the replacements right : production

In tough economic conditions a dairy farm needs high-quality, high-producing milk cows to survive. Cows with these qualities can only derive from high-quality heifers, which in turn derive from high-quality, healthy calves. A farmer should always think of his calves in the same way he would if he bought them from an independent contractor - he would expect the best value for his money. The calves produced on his own farm should be reared under the same conditions as he would expect the contractor's livestock to be raised, consequently investing securely in the future.
