It has been another busy year for the 0-6 Youngstock Advisory Team!
Ellen and Martijn ran our very first ‘Youngstock Foundation course’, a day-course for those new to calf rearing or wanting a refresher.
We will continue to run this course every 6 months.
We hosted some well attended meetings on pre-weaning nutrition and calf scours at our Rampisham headquarters. We also enjoyed a great farm walk at one of our Taunton clients, where the calving block was in full swing and where we demonstrated the new (now very soon to be launched) ImmunIGy test, a calf side test to check success of colostrum transfer. We are planning another meeting before the end of the year, watch this space!
Remember, all meetings are free of charge for 0-6 package members, they are a great opportunity to mingle with other calf-minded people. For a full overview of all the benefits of joining the 0-6 Youngstock Service, ask your vet for a flyer, or visit our website to see what Youngstock Services we offer.
