Volac Sponsors National Youngstock Association Farm Walks
4 April 2012
Would you like to get your youngstock off to a better start and reduce the potential losses? Volac is one of the major sponsors of a series of five National Youngstock Association farm walks organized by the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers and supported by DairyCo.
“These events provide all dairy farmers with an opportunity to learn from both young stock specialists and the host farmers , a combination of theory and practice, on how to improve calf rearing management, increase heifer replacement productivity and in turn improve overall herd performance,” explains RABDF’s Nick Everington.
So far over 300 farmers have attended the first three open days. Don’t miss out on one of the remaining.
