The webinar programme was of particular interest to farmers who purchase calves for their Dairy Calf to Beef system and was designed to help farmers in this system with purchasing calves using the Commerical Beef Value. Also discussed was the management of the young calf when it arrives on the farm including bloat and summer scour when calves go to grass. Finally, with the new Veterinary Medicines Regulations now in place, the use of antibiotics and AMR has come into focus and we discussed what this means on your farm.
Speakers included Peter Hanrahan, farmer from Kilkenny, Chris Daly ICBF, Michelle McGrath Animal Health Ireland and Natascha Meunier Animal Health Ireland. The webinar was chaired by Nicky Byrne of Teagasc.
