First 24 Hours - Getting it Right

I am giving a lecture on Friday, February 8th, for a class at SUNY Morrisville - a 2-year dairy program. The course, Heifer Management, has one week devoted to the young dairy calf.

My title is "First 24 Hours - Getting it Right."

A summary is:
1. The first 2  minutes - breathe
2. The first 10-30 minutes - adapting to the new environment
3. Managing Colostrum - the 5 "Q's"
  • Quickly
  • Quantity
  • Quality
  • Quantify (BSTP)
  • sQueaky clean
A copy of the powerpoint [English only] is available by sending an e-mail to - type First 24 Hours in the subject line of the e-mail.
