Farahmand M, Karimi-Dehkordi S, Khorvash M, Mirzaei M, Afshari MH., Effect of live and cultured yeast supplement on skeletal growth, weaning and final weights in Holstein calves, Onl J Vet Res., 25 (6): 408-411, 2021. We report effects of live or cultured yeasts skeletal growth, weaning and final weights in Holstein calves. Groups of 12 female calves each were supplemented 4g/d live or cultured yeasts from 3 to 72 days age and weaned at 50 days. Controls were not supplemented. To determine skeletal growth we measured height (cm) from withers, hip from pelvic bulge to end of hoof, pelvic bone width, body length from last cervical vertebra to 1st caudal vertebra, chest circumference and abdominal depth at 3, 35 and 72 days by celsius meter rating. We found no significant differences between controls and calves given live or cultured yeasts for any measurement.
