Land O’Lakes Animal Milk Products is excited to announce its 2013 ‘We Care for Calves’ DairyLine radio program. Through the monthly radio program, industry experts will share their experiences and recommendations for calf nutrition and management every third Thursday of the month through 2013.
This year-long radio series will serve as a resource for dairy producers and calf raisers by providing timely information and tips from industry experts. Topics will include: cold and warm weather calf management, group housing, fly control, electrolytes, colostrum management, 3x a day feeding, proper nutrition and automated calf feeders.
The radio segments will be aired through DairyLine’s affiliate radio stations, published on the DairyLine website and linked on the ‘We Care for Calves’ Facebook page at www.facebook.com/WeCareForCalves as part of Land O’Lakes Animal Milk Products’ continued commitment to dairy producers.
