Finding information about raising calves is not always easy. As busy farmers or students, our time is limited and searching the Internet for calf information is often time consuming and confusing.
This website, created by the Veal Farmers of Ontario, pulls together calf rearing resources into a single website designed to help you improve the way calves are raised on your farm.
Calf Care Corner is our bi-monthly e-newsletter. It delivers the latest information and ideas to help you improve the way calves are raised on your farm. If you’d like to receive it in your inbox, send us an email and we’ll add you to our list.
Building the Foundation: 2016 Dairy and Veal Healthy Calf Conference is hosted by Veal Farmers of Ontario, your calf care partners. We are committed to improving the health and welfare of all calves. We want to work with you to get all your calves off to a healthy start.
Visit the Healthy Calf Conference webpage for more information.
