Developing the rumen for optimum calf health


Join us for a webinar to learn why good rumen development is key to weaning transition and how to make it successful on your farm.

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.

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
