I Remember by Charles Wall This is what I remember about feeding small calves, two months old and less. My sister Carol and I each had a calf, and we fed them milk out of a bucket. The calf's instinct is to suck on something so you have to put your fingers in his mouth and get him to put his head down in the bucket to train him to suck your fingers and then eventually drink out of the bucket on his own. In the 1950's the nipple bucket came on the market and this made it easier to train them.. Then in the 1970's, individual calf bottles came on the market. The bottles are plastic and hold two quarts and have a nipple. A metal holder is designed to hang the bottle on a fence, and the calf can drink from the nipple. Whole milk or skim milk can be used to feed the calf. Also, dried milk and other ingredients in the form of calf milk replacer can be purchased and mixed with warm water. It is believed that women do a better job of raising calves be- cause they have a stronger care- giver instinct. In recent years some in my family have started calves on the bottle, and then train them to drink from a bucket. Some- times if the calves are healthy and doing well, we put four or Perkins Volunteer Fire Department, May 1950.
