Batch number 2, a group of 22 KoKalv pairs was introduced into the system in March and April 2020. They were kept indoors in a system similar to what the first group had, with the calf creep placed in a different way, until released to pasture in mid-May. After that, the calf creep and the contact area have been outside at pasture and the cows have also had access to the indoor environment.
Weaning and separation
The calves and cows were separated on pasture when the calves were 14-20 weeks old, by being allowed to walk on either side of a fence. Two weeks before the separation, the calves had been weaned from milk by getting a plastic tray in their nose that prevented them from suckling.
