Summary

Calves shall be able to suckle for at least 3 days after birth. During shorter suckling periods than 1 month, calves shall drink from a teat until they are 1 month old.

Difference

The EU Regulation 2092/91 is not as precise on this specific area. The EU Regulation 2092/91 does not set minimum periods for calves allowing suckling mother milk.

Justification

Stimulating the suck reflex for calves will ensure the milk is taken up the best way and is important for development.
