West Gippsland farmers are being urged to attend a workshop that promotes improved calf rearing as a vital part of the dairy farm business.
The one-day workshops will include pre-calving care, colostrum management, nutrition residue risk management, health and weaning management, and an opportunity for the group to share calf rearing experiences – the good, bad and ugly.
West Gippsland vet Tim Luke will facilitate the event, which will be an interactive day that is sure to improve calf rearing skills.
Participants should be willing to bring along a colostrum sample from their herd for testing during these hands-on workshops.
The day will run from 9.30am to 3pm on 28 July at the AgVic offices at Ellinbank.
Lunch is provided so book at info@gippsdairy.com.au or phone 5624 3900.
