Wynnstay Calf & Youngstock Convention 2018

Wynnstay Calf & Youngstock Convention 2018

Bringing leading industry experts together to enhance the learning experience for rearing better, healthier and more profitable calves.

As Calf Specialists, we always aim to work closely with other influencers on farm and firmly believe that delivering the same key messages to farmers makes it a less confusing world to live in.

As part of our continued focus to bring together all elements of the calf rearing jig-saw, we are delighted to be hosting a series of calf events throughout the UK.

Our Calf & Youngstock Convention brings together keynote speakers to update and inform you on the latest science behind calf rearing, provide you with key management practices and vaccination options that will allow you to rear healthy calves. We will also cover ventilation, providing solutions on how to make the most of your calf housing and in turn making the most of your calves.

Rearing good calves isn’t just about supplying the correct nutrition, it’s about ensuring that everything you do to that calf and the environment it lives in has a positive impact, resulting in lower mortality rates, improved calf health, and reduction in age at first calving.

We look forward to welcoming you to our events during the first week of September.

Our Calf & Youngstock Convention brings together keynote speakers to update and inform you on the latest science behind calf rearing, provide you with key management practices and vaccination options that will allow you to rear healthy calves. We are proud to announce support from leading innovative companies working with us for our first Convention:

KILCO
‘Science in Solution’
As more and more emphasis is put on reduction of the use of antibiotics in the industry, biosecurity has had a much larger focus.  The calf sector particularly has suffered from neglect in this arena but the aim of the talk is to show that some simple protocols put in place can have a very positive effect on the health of the calf and its environment.
 
VES Environmental Solutions, LLC (VES) 
‘Ventilation Strategies and their effects on Dairy Calf Performance and Health’
We will be exploring various calf ventilation strategy options being used in the dairy industry.  Pros and cons of the various systems and how do we effectively deliver fresh air and remove noxious gasses and infections agents from the calf environment.
 
MSD
'Vaccinating for Quality Colostrum’
The presentation of ‘vaccinating for quality colostrum’ is an interactive session covering the cost and causes of calf scour in the UK and giving practical advice on how to diagnose and prevent scour through colostrum management and good practice vaccination on farm.
 
TROUW NUTRITION | LifeStart
