Youngstock Discussion Group

youngstock dairy heifers meetingThe importance of calving heifers in at 24 months or younger for increased milk yields, longevity and profitability is well reported. Youngstock are the future of our dairy herds and the rearing of heifer replacements is a crucial component of herd management. Rearing heifer calves is the second largest annual expense after feed with no income until the first lactation and no profit until the second.

The Youngstock Discussion group aims to improve production and profitability for your future herd. Membership of the group includes regular calf weighing sessions, calf scour testing, colostrum transfer testing and quarterly on-farm meetings.

Please call the practice for more information, or if you would be interested in joining the group.
