Dan, as far as I know, a deacon calf is one that is taken right off the mother. So it usually applies to dairy calves since that's what they do. So this is a calf he's going to start on milk replacer, get eating solid feed, and raise to 450 to 500 to sell as a Holstein feeder.

Thanks Tbone.

I usually try to avoid that. Sorry I can't offer much advice.
