Title in English: Suckling systems improve natural living in organic dairy calves
Abstract / summary in English:
Organic farmers in the present study successfully implemented suckling systems in calf rearing. The consumption of mothers’ milk resulted in higher weaning weights at 3 months of age. Moreover, suckling systems offered increased opportunities for natural behaviour of the calves.
