This young man is checking the tern- perature of the milk before feeding it to the calves. .It's best to have temperature between 90 and 100 degrees F. Start out by feeding up to six pounds to each calf daily, divided into'two feedings. This can grad-' ually be increased until at about three weeks of age the calf is receiving one pound of milk or milk replacer daily for each ten pounds of body weight.
