To learn more about caring for your calf in colder temperatures, read up on articles featuring “the thermoneutral zone” and “nesting scores.” Bettermilk Calf Coats help young calves retain their own body heat to stay in that safe thermoneutral zone of 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit for healthy growth.

Elements in your barn such as too much or too little air ventilation can cause internal temperature shifts in your newborn calves. Ammonia exposure, bedding volume and absorption can also impact your calf’s health and increase their chance of scours.

A recent study in the United Kingdom compared 40 Holstein calves reared from Dec.- Feb. (2018). Half received calf jackets from 2 to 12 weeks of age, and half did not.
The researchers found that the calves with jackets gained an average of 11.68 pounds more than those without.
In addition, the calves with jackets:
  • Ate less feed, resulting in a savings of about $3.77 per head.
  • Had increased last rib girth measurement, indicating improved rumen development.
  • Had higher fecal scores and a lower incidence of scours.
