Developing the rumen for optimum calf health

Conference Barn, Holmescales Farm, Old Hutton, Kendal, Cumbria LA8 0NB

Join us for a practical on-farm meeting 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. You’ll hear from vet Ali Haggerty about why getting weaning right can secure your calf’s growth, health and welfare, and reduce stress during this critical period.
