Jonathan and Joanne Leigh own a dairy farm and set up their large-scale calf rearing business, Top-Notch Calves, 18 years ago. They rear 2000 calves in autumn and 5000 in spring. Jo chatted with Susie Woodward, Waikato farmer, about how they produce consistently good results from their operation through:
- Well-designed and researched nutrition and animal health strategies.
- Setting up their calf rearing facility to provide the right environment for calves to survive and thrive.
- Effectively dealing with sick calves.
