weaning a bottle fed angus calf
My calf is was born July 31 he has been bottle fed for 6 weeks due to the mother not producing enough milk. I have had him for 6 weeks and have been bottle feeding him for 6 weeks. I have grain in his stall and he gets 2 cups of grain two times a day and hay. He has been introduced to my other 2 steers for a week. He is halter trained. He has started showing little interest in the bottle and is now more interested in the grain. My question is if I go to feeding him one 6 pint bottle at night how do I know when to remove the bottle feeding totally. He is drinking water from a trough since being with my other two older steers.
