Dairy Week will feature Q&As with farmers, vets, nutritionists and analysts and much more. The FREE webinar: Salmonella: A Look at Prevalence, Prevention & Treatment Protocols, is eligible for one hour of CE.
Research shows it is not possible to eliminate the possibility of a calf becoming infected with Salmonella by good management and hygiene during or after the calving process, as it may have been infected in utero.
Providing assistance to cows or first calf heifers generally concentrates on the survival and health of the calf. However, calving difficulty resulting in prolonged labor can have adverse effects on the cow as well.
The first few days of a calf’s life sets the stage for future health and optimum performance. Learn why adequate colostrum consumption the first 12 to 24 hours can have life-long implications on calf immunity.
