Calf expert Tom Earleywine will be on-hand to chat with dairy calf and heifer raisers across the country. Earleywine has more than 30 years of experience with calves, and #CalfChat participants will have the opportunity to ask him questions regarding day-to-day calf care, management, animal well-being and nutrition.
“Raising calves right from the very beginning with proper management and nutrition can affect future growth, health and productivity,” says Tom Earleywine, Ph.D., director of nutritional services with Land O’Lakes Animal Milk Products. “There has never been a better opportunity to evaluate your calf raising program and pinpoint areas for change.”
