Managing calf welfare

All calves are essential for dairy farming and must be managed from birth to lessen the risk of:

• disease,
• discomfort to the calf, and
• injury to animals and operator.

Dairy Australia is working across the supply chain from farm to processor to ensure that calves are managed to meet agreed industry practices and standards.
