Stress Management for Heifers

Many stresses occur in the first few months of a calf's life. Just being born is a huge stress. We have only limited control over that one. 

Other stresses, however, are the result of management decisions. Managed one way, too many stresses can be too large and occur too close to each other. 

Better management has the potential to reduce these stresses and, certainly, spread them out over time.
