I think this will be my try for next time of weaning.

That makes all the difference right there. The place I wean at usually has calves rolling in at different times and I will purposely hold some over for that reason. A lot of times what will be my replacement heifers are there and I use them to calm in the incoming calves down. I've even gone so far as to load an old cow with the calves and keep them there. I had a cow I called mother goose that I use to drag around for that reason. They take to the system so much faster.

They are with another couple head so they have company but they act like they aren’t missing their mamas at all. Yeah me either lol!
Sadly, I'm loosing mother goose this year. She goes to the auction in a couple weeks. She has her last calf on her now and is mixed in with some replacement heifers. For an 03' model she still raised a good one this year, even with no teeth. She's one of those I might have to pay some one to haul.
... and to get way off topic. I think it helps to raise replacement heifers around a couple cows with baby calves. They will mother up and get use to those babies before they even have their own.
Because its one be nice of a life, Tate. One be nice of a life.
