Michigan State University researchers Lorraine Sordillo and Ángel Abuelo, both in the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine, have been awarded a four-year, $500,000 grant for their work with dairy calves.
For less than $700, Carissa Buttjer installed a remote-access camera system on the 275-cow dairy she helps manage in eastern Iowa. She shares how building the system impacted calf mortality at the dairy.
Adequate feeding space for every heifer is a moving target for most dairies and heifer raisers. When overcrowding occurs and not all heifers can eat at the same time, how does this affect animal performance?
