GB calf week

by Simon Gee on 01 February 2022.

The inaugural Great British Calf Week takes place between 2 and 9 February 2022, to celebrate the progress that has been made by the industry since the launch of the GB Dairy Calf Strategy in 2020 and raise awareness of the work of the strategy and how farmers can be involved.

 

The week will include a series of online events, webinars and farm walks, each focussing on a different aspect of successful calf management. Topics include practical on-farm approaches, such as colostrum management, to more strategic issues, such as genetics and selecting the right sire for your dairy-cross calves. Labour, skills and enterprise management will also be featured. The event offers farmers a unique opportunity to hear from recognised experts in the field, and to have all your questions answered.
