Robert Corbett, DVM, PAS, with Dairy Health Consultation, will present "Achieving Maximum Growth Potential of Replacement Heifers through Management and Nutrition," at the next DCHA Webinar,
Sept. 14 at 1:00 p.m. CDT. The webinar will offer practical advice on how an accelerated growth program can increase your operation's productivity.
"There is a lot of practical information that needs to be conveyed to the heifer grower, including proper feeding practices for young calves on milk," says Dr. Corbett. "Also, an area that is often ignored is heifer nutrition from breeding to calving. These animals are viewed as the garbage disposals of the dairy and do not receive a diet that is anywhere close to what they require."
Date: Wednesday, Sept. 14
Time: 1:00 p.m. CDT
This webinar is sponsored by FERMENTEN, brought to you by Arm & Hammer Animal Nutrition.
DCHA member registration is FREE, and non-members may register for a $25 fee.
