Calving

Minimize Stress at Birth

Maximizing calf health is not an easy task. Calves face numerous challenges during the first days of life: the calving process is a major risk factor, acquiring adequate immunity from colostrum during the first hours of life to reduce the risk of future disease challenges, avoiding infectious disease challenges while the immune system is still developing during the first 6 weeks of life, the stress of weaning, dehorning and vaccination all impact the health of the calf.

Reviewing Calving Procedures

Spring is often thought of as a “time for new beginnings”. In the dairy industry calving can be thought of as a herd’s new beginning, since it initiates a new lactation for the cow and a new life for the calf.
