My experience has been that calves don't much care to eat when it is really hot. It has also been my experience that calves don't always eat according to the schedule that I have made for them. What I do is set my schedule and bring them milk. IF they don't eat then, they wait until the next scheduled time (same way I raised my human babies). None of them has starved.
I ALWAYS throw away left over milk replacer.
