The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) is hosting a webinar today so that farmers can learn more about why good rumen development is key to weaning transition and how to achieve optimum calf health on your farm.

The webinar will be from 1:30pm to 3pm SAST. Register at the link below to get a copy of the recording.

Changes in diet, environment and social grouping can make weaning a stressful time for a calf. Get the transition period right and you secure your calf’s growth, health and welfare, and reduce stress during this critical time.

You’ll hear from Ginny Sherwin, Clinical Assistant Professor in Farm Animal Medicine at the University of Nottingham, who is a RCVS and European Recognised Specialist in Bovine Health Management.

Webinar topics

In this webinar you will learn about:

• The importance of pre-weaning calf management in achieving optimal rumen development

• How to achieve optimal weaning on your farm

• Post-weaning nutrition considerations

• How to measure, monitor and achieve weaning performance targets.

If you’re involved with calf rearing and want to give them the best start in life, this webinar’s for you. It is important to register, even if you’re unable to attend so that you can still receive a copy of the recording.
