Are you working in farm practice and want to improve the performance of your clients’ calves? Are you faced with the re-occurring problems of sick and unthrifty calves, and are looking for an evidence based understanding, along with practical applications on farm? Do you deal with clients rearing beef from dairy, and want to gain insights from vets experienced in these areas?

Want some tips and tricks to help regardless of whether you are a new graduate or an advanced practitioner?

This course will provide you with the latest evidence on optimal calf rearing strategies, starting with an understanding of the fundamental impacts calf rearing has, and covering the best practice management of colostrum, nutrition and disease. In addition, specialist information in managing ‘beef from dairy’ calves for efficient rearing and finishing will be covered.

The course format includes comprehensive notes and illustrated lectures which will include plenty of time for questions and discussion. The afternoon will focus around the specific use of thoracic ultrasonography, covering both the theory and practical application for your clients, followed by an on-farm practical to hone your skills and ensure confidence in scanning calf lungs for your own clients.
