#Calfmatters is an educational resource for farmers, vets and advisors alike.
Since it was launched with the www.calfmatters.co.uk 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 #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.

Over the next 4 weeks Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, as part of its #Calfmatters initiative, will be bringing you a series of essential videos that will cover a range of topics to help you achieve better calf health.
At this time of year we’re thinking about housing of cattle, and these videos provide tips to ensure your calves are in the best shape for a productive winter.
Ailsa Milnes, vet adviser for Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, highlights why striving for best practice in calf health, and specifically calf respiratory disease, is a key issue for all farmers housing calves.
Especially with the increasing pressure to reduce antimicrobial usage.
