1 What are the most important points for farmers to adhere to at calving on farms?
I know it’s a simple one, but in terms of maintaining good hygiene, clipping tails can have a big impact on keeping udders clean. Make sure all dosing is up to date for fluke and worms. Move cows out to good clean, dry bedding before calving to clean off cows. Making sure a good quality mineral is fed before calving is also very important. Finally, talk to your vet about scour vaccination and whether it is required for your farm.
