The first three months of a calf’s life are crucial. They help determine its future health, growth and performance. Calf housing design should support good health and welfare, which ultimately benefits the farm business financially. There are a number of different housing systems available for calves, but they must provide for the animals’ needs so that performance is maximised and welfare standards met.
Join AHDB Beef & Lamb, Jamie Robertson, Livestock Management Systems and LLM Farm Vets to find out how calf housing can be improved to maximise performance and welfare.
