Calves that drink one quart of milk in under two minutes have decreased lactose absorption compared to those who meet the two-minute mark. The decreased lactose absorption negatively impacts daily weight gain and increases the risk of nutritional diarrhea as lactose passes through the intestines too quickly. Calves that nurse too quickly also cross-suckle, causing navel and teat damage to pen mates. It is important that calves suckle hard from birth to weaning to ensure they drink at the slow speed required for full milk curding and lactose absorption. For optimum health, calves should start drinking from a new Milk Bar Teat and stay with that teat, or a similarly aged teat, until weaning. As teats age they soften, increasing milk flow.
