Fall Calf Workshop- November 15th, 2016

19faca75-7139-4688-84c5-95cbf520243d-110-imp-1Join us for the Agri-Basics, Inc. Fall Calf Workshop! 2017 is quickly approaching and so is the new Veterinary Feed Directive. Learn how to raise a better calf from the beginning so we can help reduce the use of feed grade antibiotics. Topics will include a discussion and presentation of why the Veterinary Feed Directive was put into effect, a hands-on activity on how cleanliness and proper management with the cow can lead to a healthier calf in the maternity pen and a hands-on pulling demonstration. A refresher course in calf pulling will also dive into taking a step back and looking at our pulling protocol. Are we too pushy when it comes to pulling? And how does that effect the calf? All of these topics will highlight management techniques and protocols on how we can try to prevent disease before it strikes. This event will be held on November 15th, 2016 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM and proudly held at an Agri-Basics, Inc. customer farm, of Ezra and Janice Horst, Quarryville, PA. Lunch will be provided.
