RABDF will be hosting a youngstock and heifer rearing walk on Wednesday 15 April at GH Jones & Son, in Northop, Flintshire. 

The aim of the walk is to exchange information on calf health and welfare while improving the performance of dairy and beef youngstock rearing. 

The following key areas will be covered:

  • ‘Prevent profit from going down the drain – dealing with calf scours’ – Boehringer Inglehiem
  • ‘Feeding the Future’ – For Farmers
  • ‘Feed for Growth: Growing better cows’ – Volac
  • ‘Make your farm a fortress – Johnes & BVD control’ – XL Vets
  • ‘Managing air climate, keeping cold calves cosy but fresh’ – Jamie Robertson

Kevin and Ann Jones are milking 280 Holstein Friesian cows and sell their milk to Tomlinsons Dairy. High yielding cows are housed throughout the year with low yielders being turned out in the summer.
