Message Title: how early can you wean a calf

Our rule of thumb on weaning is that they are generally ready to wean when they have lost their spots. 23 days is much too early...some where like 70 to 90 days is about right.
Did you change his milk replacer or buy a new bag recently? or anything else in his diet? Elk don't take kindly to changes in diet.
