** Socially distanced health and safety measures will be put in place, and because of this, spaces will be limited. **

The calving course is a one-day, small group, practical course aimed at farm staff who are new or feel inexperienced when calving either beef or dairy cows.

Students will learn:

  • The normal calving process – how the cow prepares for calving, the signs and duration of calving.
  • When to intervene – this is key to making sure we optimise cow health and recovery and the viability of the calf.
  • How to intervene – minimising infection and potential damage to the cow/calf. How to recognise the presentation of the calf.
  • When and how to assist – how to use calving ropes; safe use of a calving jack for the cow, calf and farmer. Know when to seek assistance.
  • How to resuscitate a calf.
  • Aftercare – pain relief, recognition of milk fever, cow nutrition, colostrum management and navel care.
