Andrew Henderson (European Veterinary Specialist in Bovine Health Management) will take a look at a new purpose built calf rearing building and discuss the key aspects of calf housing and ventilation. He will also talk us through the specifics of calf feeding and how to easily monitor and achieve the target growth rates in dairy heifers.
