Fine Tuning Calf Rearing
Fine Tuning Calf Rearing – to maximise efficiency and make marginal gains – is the focus of Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health’s #Calfmatters campaign in 2020. And there are plenty of ways that producers can get involved with the programme – and benefit from the results. Click here for information on how lean concepts offers calf-rearing benefits.
The connection with motor racing campaign was brought to life when Tom Oliphant, British Touring Car Driver and farmer Karen Halton from Halton Farms teamed up to present at a CALFMATTERS workshop at Dairy-Tech linking the concept of margin gains on the racetrack and calf health.
