We seem to be heading towards raising dairy calves (Holstein or Gurnsey) to sell as lightweight calves (300#) or feeders (700#). Our capital outlay is modest to this point and we can feed 15 new calves at a time.
Generally bull calves are taken from momma right after birth and raised on a bottle, then grain, then pasture until time to go to the feedlot. There isn’t much to be gained, money wise, feeding them to the higher weight on a small parcel. The labor intensive part is from day one to 300# so we may start doing some serious bottle warming.
Much has been said about subsistence farming, anyone else trying to make money from their land?
