Focus on Calves

Foreword

Welcome to our 6th edition of Focus on Calves. The past year has seen a variety of pressures on UK calf rearers. The spotlight from activists has, on the whole, done nothing but highlight the exceptional standard that the farming community in this country holds.

Increasing influences from processors and supermarkets have led to many farmers having to adapt their calf-rearing systems, and no doubt, more changes are on the cards for the future. The Wynnstay Calf & Youngstock Team is always on hand to advise you through these changing times, and on how to progress in the most economically-efficient way.

It’s not all doom and gloom though! The great weather we are seeing at the minute brings an excellent opportunity to clear out calf pens. Thoroughly disinfect them and allow them to dry, removing the bugs and bacteria that have had a chance to build up over the winter. On Page 30, you can view our hygiene tips and on Page 31, you can have a chance to enter our competition to win a complete hygiene package worth £150!

This publication is your complete guide to the best practice and latest innovations in calf rearing, written by our very own team of Calf & Youngstock Specialists, with guest articles from industry experts. At Wynnstay, we pride ourselves on offering an extensive range of quality products, together with expert advice in a wide range of fields, including calf and youngstock rearing. Like any area of farming, there are always new challenges presented by calf rearing, alongside old hurdles which continue to test us. Our Calf & Youngstock Specialists can act as an extension to your on-farm team, offering expert advice and support when needed, to ensure you get the best possible system in place for your youngstock. Take a look though our publication for a taste of what we can offer you.
