Contains info relating the production of young stock, including chapters on dairy cow production, calving, first days, weaning, housing and getting in calf.
Rearing calves into heifers is a major investment in terms of money and labour. Your dual aims are to turn your heifer into a strong, productive dairy cow and to use labour, housing and feed efficiently. If you achieve these aims, you’ll cut the costs of rearing per kilogram of milk.
Youngstock Signals covers the basics of successful rearing, shows you how to control risks and helps you to structure your work so that each calf automatically receives the best treatment. Youngstock Signals is full of sensible tips on how to improve the rearing of calves and yearlings. Written clearly and illustrated with useful photos and Marleen Felius’s splendid drawings, this informative handbook is very user-friendly and down to earth.
