Research project with three objectives:
- To arrive at the approximate dollar cost of raising dairy herd replacements
- To determine whether it is possible for the young ruminant animal to utilize non-protein nitrogen to meet part of the protein requirement for growth.
- To attempt to reduce the cost of raising dairy herd replacements to the College Farm by breeding the heifers to calve at 21-24 months of age rather than the system employed in the past which placed heifers in production at 30-36 months of age.
