SCOTT JESSEE - AGRICULTURE Getting ready to wean calves Many producers are preparing to wean calves for the upcoming VQA Feeder Calf Sale sponsored by the Abingdon Feeder Cattle Association. This sale will be held on November 7th at 6:00 pm on the Virginia Cattleman's Tel-O-Auction. To be eligible for the sale, calves must be weaned 45 day, vaccinated, and feed and water trough broken. Several years ago a preconditioning / back-grounding study was conducted at Virginia Tech's Research Center at Steele's Tavern. Three groups of steer calves were weaned and back-grounded for 42 days on the following rations: pasture only, hay and grain, and pasture and gram. Grain was supplemented to two groups and animals were fed by hand at 1% of their body weight (if a calf weighed 500#, it got 5#'s of grain). Pastures were mainly regrowth fescue (after 2nd cutting hay) with clovers. Gains:during this study were good as no group lost weight. Calves on pasture and grain gained the most. This group gained an average of 2.36 pounds per day (adding 99 pounds per animal over the 42 day study). The next highest gainers were those off hay and grain. This group added 2.12 pounds per day (+89 pounds per calf over 42 days). The group that received only pasture posted positive gains at 1.79 pounds per day (+75 additional pounds over 42 days). The fear of loss of weight deters many producers from back-grounding their calves. From this study, calves that are managed correctly can gain weight and add significantly to their base value. Using home-raised feeds (whether good hay or grass) and limit feeding grain offers producers the opportunity to capitalize on good management. A calf that is weaned, vaccinated, and feed and water trough broken is certainly worth more in the marketplace than one that was "truck- weaned." In many cases $80 to $100 per calf more.
