A free webinar on effective calf health management will be available to view online from 8pm on Wednesday.

The 40-minute long video is based around calf rearing on Richard Marshall’s farm near Omagh, Co Tyrone.

Richard has been using a purpose-built shed for calf rearing in his autumn-calving herd for the past two seasons. It includes automatic calf feeders, a ventilation tube and wind-break roller blinds.

Also speaking is local vet Maria Morris from Strule Veterinary Services. She will discuss effective measures to prevent, as well as treat, common health issues in young valves.

Dairylink adviser Aidan Cushnahan will talk about monitoring calf performance and hitting liveweight gain targets.
