    I am currently raising 3 bottle calves. They are all doing great. I bought one of the three last week and while he is doing great, I have noticed white worms in his poo. Is it too early to worm him? Is any one familiar with baby calves that are raised on a bottle?

    No its not to early to worm and he should make a great turn around for you...just worm for his weight. I worm my baby calves the day they are born. and then 2 weeks after if I can catch them...lol...use the liquid pour on , its easier to do...
