That should help get her calf closer to the ideal weight as well as finished on time, the longer she has to work with them the better.
Not sure if you all have a blower or not but if she does it can be a great tool in winter when the weather is not ideal. If she can get out and just blow him off and run a comb through the hair on most days, it helps keep the dingle balls off him and keeps him used to being handled daily.
