CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 8 May 1914

COlUtUOTING FAULTS IN YOUNG OALVEB. .. One of tho most difficult habits to ' overcomo where a number of young calyc-8 nrc running in a IOOHC box is that of sucking one another, Writes an English correspondent. There is a wido difleroncc of opinion regarding tho results which may occur. Many claim that small quantities of hair are taken into tho stomach, and this is i'mally matted into a firm ball, .which may clog in the stomach or bowols of the calf, resulting in death. The reason for this habit of sucking may in some measure suggest a re medy. Wheir we feed calves with milk from the pail, they drink so rapidly that they fail to relieve the mouth of the saliva which naturally mixes with the milk, while tlioj nre uuck iug. In order to relieve tUcir moutha of the accretion which organs of di gestion demand, they will seek some thing to Buck which will ri«l their mouths of the saliva, which Imtf be&n retained to a large extent, and their favourite object ia Homo portion of the ...
