Maternity and Colostrum Management – How Can We Deliver Healthier Calves and More Productive Cows?

Presented by: Leticia Sinedino, Dairy Production Specialist, Zoetis

Webinar Summary: The maternity pen is critical for healthy starts of the lactation of a cow and the life of a calf. The calving process and the first 6 hours of life can determine the success of her lactation and the lifetime productivity of her calf. How big are your risks? Are there opportunities to step it up a level? Are you setting up your cows and calves for success or creating problems? Maternity pen and colostrum management need to be a high priority on your dairy, so let’s discuss some opportunities for you to help get both off to a healthy start!
