Isolation pen works well

 Resize text         Printer-friendly version of this article Printer-friendly version of this article

All new arrivals at this heifer ranch spend the first three weeks in this isolation pen. That way, Don Gardner, veterinarian and custom heifer-raiser, can keep an eye on the heifers to make sure they have a good transition (as well as spot any potential poor-doers). In addition, his contract with producers requires that the owners pay for any treatment within the first 30 days of arrival. This encourages producers to send healthy heifers as opposed to sick, problem calves.
