The calving pen is one of the most important areas on a dairy farm.

There are four objectives to good calving pen management, explains Phil Durst, Michigan State Extension dairy educator. They include:

  • Cow comfort and low stress for the dam.
  • Low health risk to dam and calf.
  • Opportunity for seclusion by the cow.
  • Convenience for the people working with the cow and calf.

Durst explains ways to achieve these objectives in the January 2012 issue of the Michigan Dairy Review. Click here to access the article.
