  • John Martin (a1), P. J. Caffrey (a1), F. P. O'Mara (a1) and P. O. Brophy (a1)


In early weaning calf rearing systems, intake and nutritive value of the concentrate are the main determinants of performance. A possible way of increasing the nutritive value of concentrates is to increase the oil level, either by adding oil/fat or full fat oilseeds. An experiment was carried out to evaluate the effect on calf intake and performance of the addition of full fat rapeseed or full fat soyabean to a calf starter concentrate.
