Dr. Kent Anderson of Valleywide Veterinary Services will bring his longtime annual VT Beef Producers’ Association Calf Clinic inside to cover preparation, management, and husbandry intervention considerations for a successful calving season. Dr. Kent places heavy emphasis on the simple basics, “clean, dry, comfortable, and well nourished”, minimizing stress, and working facilities. He will also address how to recognize dystocia (difficulty calving), strategies for assisted delivery, and the needs of the newborn calf. Traditionally the presentation is very informal with questions and discussion encouraged.
