Calf won't eat solid food
My 10 year old DD is raising a bottle calf. Blossom is close to 3 months old now and loves her bottle but isn't touching the grain and pellets we've been offering for about a month now. We've been giving her about 50/50 sweet feed and Calf Manna. She will eat it from my daughter's hand but won't eat it out of the feed pan. Is it too early for solid food? Should we try something different? Blossom could be larger but isn't really thin and appears to be growing. Told DD that baby calves learn to eat grain by watching their mamas so since she was Blossom's mama she was going to have to eat some grain in front of her to teach her how to eat. DD was not amused!
