Manusmriti verses 5.41-42 say this:

madhuparke ca yajñe ca pitṛdaivatakarmaṇi | atraiva paśavo hiṃsyā nānyatraityabravīn manuḥ || 41 || eṣvartheṣu paśūn hiṃsan vedatattvārthavid dvijaḥ | ātmānaṃ ca paśuṃ caiva gamayatyuttamaṃ gatim || 42 ||

At the Madhuparka offering, at sacrifices, and at the rites in honour of the Pitṛs,—at these alone should animals be killed, and nowhere else: thus has Manu declared—(41)

The twice-born person, knowing the real import of the Veda, killing animals on these occasions, carries himself and the animal to the most excellent state.—(42).

Medhatithi says this in his commentary on those verses:

The present text sums up in brief those occasions on which the killing of animals is sanctioned by the scriptures.

‘Madhuparka’— has been already described. At this the killing of the calf has been enjoined.

‘Sacrifice’—such as the Jyotiṣṭoma and the like; the eleventh stage of which consists of the animal-sacrifice; as also the Paśubandha, at which the sacrificing of the animal forms a sacrifice by itself.

My question is, which scripture talks about killing baby cows in Yajnasthe Madhuparka?
