Caring for Calves
“If there was a rating for video’s produced on dairy farming the recent production Caring For Calves would get four stars.
This is undoubtedly the best information package I have seen on possibly the most important management practice carried out by dairy farmers.
It features dairy farmers, veterinarians, advisory officers, researchers, nutrition consultants and contract rearers.
For too long replacement calves and heifers have taken second place on many dairy farms.
Considerable research, including a large scale program being carried out in NSW Agriculture’s Elizabeth Macarthur Agricultural Institute has been directed at showing farmers that well managed and grown replacements will reap substantial profits.
The ways and hows are shown in the video.
All NSW Agriculture Advisory Officers have a copy of the video.”

“At the recent meeting of the association the committee and members viewed with enthusiasm your video presentation of our magnificent country side. We hope too, that should we ever be in a position to require your services again that we can continue our association.”
“Just a note to thank you for the complimentary copy of your video and to request receipt of further editions in the series.
I found the concept interesting and will encourage my team to distribute it throughout the group. We find extension of this type of material often brings us better adoption both with the topics covered as well as the current key issues.”
