Early Life Survival

Trouw Nutrition GB / University of Nottingham

Webinar 2: Early Life Survival

During early life calves are vulnerable and number of challenges may appear during the rearing period. Having a proven, proactive approach to dealing with a challenge or a disease outbreak in the calf shed can ensure a consistent approach amongst team members as well as supporting calf health, welfare and overall performance.

Topics will include the use of antibiotics, the consequences of dehydration as well as strategies to minimize any risks, including a focus on hygiene protocols, calving yard considerations and stocking rates.

Date: 12:30 - 14:00 hrs on Friday, 25 February 2022
