CalfCare Introduction

Calfhood diseases have a major impact on the economic viability of farm operations, due to the direct costs of calf losses and treatment and the long term effects on performance.  On top of the financial losses, calf diseases also account for additional workloads and frustrations for the people responsible for the care of the calves on farm.  On many farms, calf health and performance can be improved markedly by introducing some simple and inexpensive changes.

The CalfCare™ Technical Working Group bases all outputs on a thorough review of the currently available scientific literature on calf rearing.
