Vita Plus Corp. hosted its inaugural Calf Summit for customers and allied industry representatives on June 19-21 in Green Bay, Wis. Patterned after its annual Dairy Summit, the Calf Summit was all about calves and raising them well.
“Raising healthy replacements for tomorrow’s dairy herds is a core focus of what we do when it comes to helping our producers with their baby calves and heifers,” says Ann Hoskins, Calf Products Manager for Vita Plus. “The Vita Plus Calf Summit was a natural extension of that focus, to bring leading industry experts from around the world together to share ideas and the latest research that calf raisers could take home and implement.”
In addition to educational sessions, the event featured farm tours of two nearby dairies, Pagel’s Ponderosa nearKewaunee and Dairy Dreams near Casco.
Supporting sponsors of the event were Milk Products Inc.; Vi-COR; Alltech Inc.; Elanco Animal Health; ClariFly; Pfizer Animal Health; and Milk Specialties Global Animal Nutrition.
