Health Welfare and Fertility
The Programme: Effective management of the transition period can make or break the cow's lactation. Find out how dry cow management is crucial to producing a cow that holds condition, calves easily and enters the herd primed to meet her yield potential.
AHDB Dairy’s Calf to Calving initiative shares best management practice from birth through to calving to help you reduce your rearing costs.
Join AHDB for this timely discussion on winter silage. It will provide a good opportunity to assess this year’s silage crops to identify if improvements can be made to silage making in the coming season.
Feed and Forage
The meeting: Currently there are over 380,000 heifers over 24 months of age that have not calved and research indicates that to ensure a profitable and healthy herd, calving at 24 months of age is essential.
