Cold weather places specific demands on calves to generate body heat to stay warm. A calf exposed to decreasing temperatures will use increasing amounts of energy just to maintain its body temperature. Calf raisers often add a fat supplement to conventional milk replacers or increase the amount of milk replacer fed to provide additional nutrients during cold stress. 

Research was conducted at Merrick's Research Farm in Union Center, WI to evaluate the performance of calves raised on different intensive feeding programs during cold stress.This objective of this study was to explore the possible need for nutrient supplementation during cold weather and the potential performance advantage of one program over another.
