Surges in Calvings: Responding Positively Rather than 
"Muddling Through"

This is the title of a new Calf Facts resource sheet just added to the Calf Facts section of the web site. Click 

A summary of the content is:

  • Breeding records allow us to accurately predict sustained surges in calvings.

  • These sustained surges in calvings can overload the calf care system creating sub-standard care.

  • It is better to manage overloads rather than just “muddle through” and have compromised calf care.

  • Choose between decreasing the calf population, increasing resources or some combination of the two.
