Description:
Milk-based diets are balanced rations that involve commercial milk replacers, which utilize surplus skim milk powder and whey  both byproducts of the dairy industry  in their production. These commercial milk replacers are of equal or greater nutritional value than milk straight from the dairy cow. A great deal of time and care are taken to train the young calves to drink their milk from pails, and during this training period their diet will be supplemented with water and electrolytes to ensure they receive adequate fluids and nutrition.
