Caring for the freshly calved cow

Happy New Year

Calving



This month, Chris Warren focuses on Care of the freshly calved cow in the January edition of our month newsletter. The freshly calved cow is under a huge amount of stress both physically and metabolically. Energy requirements increase dramatically along with the need for fluid, calcium and other macro minerals. This, combined with a reduced intake of feed around calving and the cows relatively slow response to these defecits, can lead to huge problems immediately post calving and later in lactation.
