New Entrants to Farming – Planning for Calf Health (Bathgate)


With spring calving imminent, we are running our popular calving and young calf survival meeting.  This course will cover practical tips and tricks to ensure an easy calving.  It will also focus on ensuring survival of the calf in the first few minutes of life and health risks to turnout.

The aim of the course is:

  • To increase the survival rate and thriftiness of new born calves
  • To reduce the incidence of oxygen deprivation and acidosis in new born calves
  • To improve welfare in the calving cow and new born calf
  • To transfer current knowledge and skills on calving cows and resuscitating calves to practitioners and farmers
