To pull or not to pull? That is (one of) the questions dairy farm personnel have while working in the maternity area on a farm.

This workshop will teach best calving management practices to minimize stillbirth rates and improve calf and cow health during and directly after the calving process.

This in-person workshop includes an oral presentation followed by hands-on demonstration and practice intended to train farm personnel in the learning objectives below.   Under the guidance of experienced educators, participants will apply the concepts from the oral presentation using sedated calves and a bovine pelvis.
