SDP Heifers on Target/Heifer Rearing Webinar

WHEN: October 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
WHERE: Subtropical Dairy is hosting an on-online discussion focusing on HEIFER REARING with Dr Carl Hockey.

Heifers present a significant investment on dairy farms. At the point of calving, it is estimated that a heifer has cost the dairy farm owner between $1300 and $1500. Therefore, for every 100 heifers raised on a farm, it has cost the enterprise $130,000 to $150,000. To receive a return on this significant investment, heifers must get in calf quickly, calve without difficulty, produce well and get back in calf easily.  To achieve good productivity, a heifer must be well grown from day one.

Join us online for an interactive discussion and Q & A session, focusing on the Dairy Australia ‘Heifers on Target’ recommendations.  Make a note of any questions or issues you’d like answered and discussion will be focused around areas of interest to the group.

More information to follow next week.
