CALF REARING TIPS:
Disinfection of calf housing is essential. (we recommend OMNICIDE) Ensure all feeding equipment is clean and hygienic. CALFHAGE can be offered from day 3. Regular feeding intervals for milk replacer and consistent mixing method and concentration are essential to reduce stomach upsets. Fresh clean water should be available at all times.
Deep dry bedding is essential for calf comfort and hygiene. Straw is scarce but FIBRE BED is widely available in Bulk or in bags. FIBRE BED is coarser than PEAT BED and has excellent absorption capacity and keeps calves spotlessly clean. SAWDUST is also available in 30kg bags.
