When the temperature falls below 50 degrees Fahrenheit for extended periods of time, a calf will burn extra energy to keep warm. This is the same energy the calf should be using for growth. Wind and snow have a greater effect on when a calf will start to burn energy to keep warm. A North Dakota State University study found calves wearing calf coats gained 1.4 pounds daily from birth to four weeks, compared to the 1.2 pounds gained from calves without coats.
