CALF; the young of the cow kind, an animal too well known to require a particular description.
To breed calves to make young bulls, take no one that was calved within the prime, which is counted five days after the change of the moon; for then they arc not good to keep, but to eat or to fell. Among a hundred calves, two are sufficient to keep for bulls ; as for the rest, it will be best to geld them.
