Abstract
Small scale dairy farms in Kenya account for about 75% of the total milk production' (Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock development, 1983). However, these farms experience very high calf mortality rates (1~20 %) and low daily growth rates « '·300 g) due to poor feeding (Stotz, 1979). This is attributed to the increasing use of milk as a human food, which makes it difficult to spare sufficient quantities for calves.
