CalfCare Open Days

Animal Health Ireland/Teagasc CalfCare Events 2019
 Calf Rearing: Steps to success for improved calf health

What topics will be covered at these calf events?

Can Rotavirus, Crypto or Coccidiosis be a problem on your farm? Do you know how to prevent and control these parasitic infections? Find out more when we discuss the causes, effects and how to control these infections in young calves.

Findings from the on-farm risk assessments from the Johne’s disease control programme have identified some interesting facts in relation to good management practices. Concentrating on pre and post calving, we will discuss key management decisions required for improved calf health.

With dairy herd expansion will your calf accommodation be inadequate for the numbers of calves born next spring? What options have you to house the extra calves and feed them quickly and efficiently? Learn more from our speakers.

High standards of calf welfare are essential for our industry. It is vital that best practice is observed at all times to ensure these high standards are maintained.  Find out more on the latest guidelines on calf handling for transportation to ensure the highest standards of calf welfare.

Good calf health is the basis for long term profitability on your farm. These annual calf events serve to assist you in ensuring this profitability is enhanced and protected. Come along to one of the Teagasc/Animal Health Ireland CalfCare Open Days in conjunction with the Dairy Milk Processors and which are kind supported by Volac.

All CalfCare events commence at 11.00am.
