Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Stocking densities of replacement yearling Holstein heifers were studied under freestall conditions (1.0, .71, and .63 freestall/head) and loose housing conditions (4.5, 3.2, and 2.8 m2/head under roof) in two 180-day growth trials. Heifers gained .69, .69, and .66 kg/day under freestall conditions and .63, .56, and .71 kg/day under loose housing conditions for the stocking densities. Stocking densities of replacement herd heifers may be increased to .63 freestall/head under freestall conditions or to 2.8 m2/head under loose housing conditions without expanding existing facilities.
