I know it is early but I was wondering if anyone has ever used straight cows milk to feed with we have 600 cows so we have some milk we also have a pasturizing machine I have been thinking about trying it I would pasturize it first then feed any imput would be great. THANKS.

That is all I use. Give them all they want. There is several threads on here about cows milk but we call it red cap.

Just pasturize it and feed them all they want. Some may say different but I have seen really good results doing it this way. You can not feed all they want with replacers but with cow milk you can and they will do great. With replacers fawns always seem like they are still hungry with whole cow milk the little guys can go to sleep satisfied with a full belly.

Boy with your own cow herd and pasturizing machine you have the best feed available because you can feed more cream to the fawns. Your cow milk would be better than red cap in my opinion and work the best.
