BCVA Webinar - Management of weaning the spring born suckled calf

Tuesday 11th August 8-9pm

Being presented by Joseph Henry

Farmers get paid for producing kilograms of beef. Weaning is a big shock to most animals and this is often compounded by simultaneous housing leading to stress which reduces growth rates and may precipitate disease. This webinar will outline some ways to help increase the kilograms of beef produced.

This is a FREE webinar for BCVA members and will be broadcast on TUESDAY 11th August from 8-9pm and will be presented by Joseph Henry

Since graduating from Glasgow in 1998, Joe has worked in Northumberland and in New Zealand, primarily with suckler and sheep clients focusing on preventative medicine, production KPIs and grazing management. In 2018 he undertook a study tour to large cow-calf operations in the western USA.

Joe also runs a farm with his wife Rachel, including a Luing-based herd of about 100 head. He also provides the veterinary input to the East Northumberland Farmer’s Club benchmarking group which started 2003
