Managing Calves for Improved Productivity and Reduced Antimicrobial Use: Webinar September 28
Update: Missed the webinar? Find the recording and check for future webinars on our Webinars page.
The ways cow-calf producers manage their calves can have a big impact on how well they’ll perform on feed and whether they end up in the feedlot’s sick pen.
Join this free webinar for practical tips and strategies to increase fed calves’ productivity by lowering their stress and disease susceptibility. This session will also walk through the economics to help producers better understand how and when the extra efforts improve their own profitability.
