Abstract

Based on a 5-yr review of published reports, reporting of materials, methods, and data for calf and heifer studies is often not very complete. The number of calves or heifers per treatment was often inadequate to detect meaningful and statistically significant differences with observed variability. A set of guidelines is provided to assist in designing and planning experiments, collection of data, and summation and reporting. The guidelines may also be useful to reviewers as a checkpoint of information needed or desired.
