Summary and Implications

Precision management in calf care is needed as there are many ways to add value to these heifers before they join the milking string. A one-day workshop was hosted on August 31, for a first-hand look at how fellow dairy farmers are housing pre-weaned calves using technology to help manage their calf program. These included automatic calf feeders, pasteurizers, and milk cooling systems. Areas of focus included basic sanitation for automatic calf feeders, equipment hygiene, and housing and ventilation.
