Jonathan and Joanne Leigh own a dairy farm and set up their large-scale calf rearing business, Top-Notch Calves, 16 years ago. They rear 2000 calves in autumn and 5000 in spring. They will share how they produce consistently good results from their operation through well-designed and researched nutrition and animal health strategies. They will also take us on a tour of their facility to show us how they have created a set-up that works.
Best start for calves
Emma Cuttance, VetEnt, will talk about calf health and welfare research findings, and how to achieve better outcomes for your calves. She will cover the importance of “gold” colostrum and how to ensure your calves get enough good quality colostrum close to birth.
We can guarantee that you will go home more informed about calf rearing than when you arrived!
This is our last visit to Top-Notch.
Previous visits have been a sell out – register early so you don’t miss out!!
