#Calfmatters

#Calfmatters is an educational resource for farmers, vets and advisors alike. 

Since it was launched with the www.calfmatters.com website two years ago, the initiative has grown to include the annual #Calfmatters health survey, various short videos giving advice to farmers on many aspects of calf rearing from buildings to nutrition, as well as a series of informative articles in the farming press and on-farm meetings and talks.

The first ever #Calfmatters roundtable meeting took place in late 2018 attended by vets, farmers and policy makers. The output of the discussion was the #Calfmatters Calf Health and Welfare Blueprint, an at-a-glance guide for farmers and vets that can take pride of place in the calf shed or farm office. Copies of the Blueprint are available from the #Calfmatters website.

The #Calfmatters team of vets and experts will be speaking at events around the country and look forward to catching up with as many farmers as possible, to discuss any aspect of calf rearing, health and management.
