Thinking outside the box with Jud Heinrichs...

Harpers and ACT hosted a joint meeting on calf and heifer rearing with guest speakers Katy Hawksworth from Kernow Vets, who discussed the importance of feeding calves colostrum and Prof. Jud Heinrichs of Penn State University. Jud is a leading expert in dairy nutrition and management, Jud's focus of the evening was the importance of heifer rearing.

The discussion points were excellent and left everyone with lots to ideas on improving and developing management systems.
