Well done video about Johne's disease. We want to prevent calves getting any kind of infections!
We have the following recommendations, much like in the video:
- Separate the calf from the birthing area directly, to prevent infection. Bring them to a cuddle box, where the mother can still lick her.
- Separate the mother too, by using a pamper pen
- Milk the cow directly after birth
- Feed the calf colostrum from the mother (if she's healthy of course)
What do you do to prevent infections? Please share your expertise!
