Proper calf rearing is the insurance for continuous dairy farming. Good management ensures a continuous replacement of spent stock with young and energetic stock. Healthy calves are the first step to having thriving replacements and growing animals. This is mainly by reducing calf mortality rate and cutting calving interval. Calf health depends greatly on the quality and management of the calf in early life, particularly in the first six weeks.
