So are you saying that all they get is grain?  No protein?  No mineral?  Yes, we generally wean calves off of milk at around 6 weeks of age.  And there are alot of people that wean calves when they pull the CIDR's on thier cows (some do it right, some don't.)  But grain alone, without proper balancing, is not the optimum ration for those calves.  And they have been on a grain mix (with protein and minerals), prior to weaning.  All I'm saying is that the calf needs to be consuming a properly balanced, high-protein, grain mix at at least 3 lb/d prior to taking him completely off of milk.  After that, pour the coals to him!  You keep saying "grain" as if you just dump corn in with nothing else.

It depends on what you plan to do with the calf down the road.  If it is just to retain in the herd then yes, you can get transitioned over to grain quickly (although I would not throw the calf in a pen without milk if it has never seen grain before.)  If we are talking show cattle then that is an entirely different beast than dairy calves.  Unlimited grain had better contain a high-protein supplement also.

Do you have some calves on the ground at your place, I would like to stop by and see them? What have the bw's been like?

We have a few at one of our places.  We didn't AI very many to him because we were flushing a cow to him and the cow didn't flush.  Jon and Adam Behmer (6 miles from us) also have some.  You are welcome to come see them. 402.750.8304

From what I am hearing, calves are coming in the low 90's and I have only heard of one requiring assistance so far.

I have tons of experience at this.  We have had orphan calves go on to win county fairs (not bucket calf shows) and compete at national shows like Louiville.  The trick is to not fall into the trap of feeding him alot of forage.  Calves his age don't have a truly functional rumen and even if they did, forage does not have enough energy to do much for them.  First you need a good milk replacer like Hubbard Feeds Calf Beginner 20-20 (preferably with Biomos).  Do not spare expense on this!  Secondly, you need a quality calf starter (texturized feed) like Hubbard Feeds Elite 18 (once again, do not skimp.)  Baby calves have high protein and energy requirments so you can't skimp.  You will need to work the calf up to two quarts of milk replacer morning and night (4 quarts daily) and offer the Elite 18 buy the handfull to start with (do not put too much out as it will go out of condition.)  Also offer clean water!!  You should be able to work the calf up to 3 lb of Elite 18 over a couple week period.  If he does not come up on the dry feed, you may need to back the milk replacer down to 1 1/2 quarts morning and night.  There's a little bit of an art to this.  One 50 lb bag of milk replacer will be adequate.  Drop down to 2 quarts of milk replacer daily one week prior to weaning off of the milk replacer.  The calf must be eating a minimum of 3 lb of Elite 18, prior to weaning off of milk replacer and he will go up from there when you take the milk away (you can even go down to 1 quart / day to make the weaning process smoother.)  Do not offer forage to the calf prior to weaning off of milk replacer.  After weaning, offer Elite 18 free-choice along with a small amount of hay.  When you run out of the Elite 18, switch to Show-Rite Elite creep plus hay.  Put him back with your calves when you wean.  The process works great and they look like show animals not bucket calves when you are done.

Mojito's first calf crop is looking awesome!  Be sure to contact Dean Staley in Charter Oak, IA (712) 269-9277 or Steve McHale in WV (304) 667-1962 to schedule an appointment to see some of the great calves they are getting out of him.  He is working on clean, dirty and double dirty cows.  Be sure to check them out before you make your semen purchasing decisions this year!!!!
The attached picture is a heifer calf in WV out of a Sunseeker cow.  We hope to have more pictures soon but getting pics of babies is no small feat!
