Calving Clinic

December 7, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Fayette, Mo. – The University of Missouri Extension in Howard County will be hosting a calving clinic on December 7 located at Howard County Veterinary Services (293 Hwy 5 and 240, Fayette). Sign in starts at 5:30 pm with the program to begin at 6:00 pm. Calving clinics are designed to teach producers when and how to assist during delivery, when a veterinarian should be contacted, and how to care for the newborn calf through hands-on exploration and learning. Youth aged 12 and over involved in 4-H and FFA are encouraged to attend.

Presentations will include:

· Determination of calf presentation during calving

· Techniques to assist livestock through a difficult birth

· Techniques to care for the newborn calf

· Techniques to care for the mother after a difficult birth

Hands-on Demonstrations:

· Calf pulling

· Tubing

· Body Condition Scoring

A “phantom uterus” will be used to simulate techniques used during calving. A cadaver calf is used to provide a realistic demonstration of the many ways the farmer can assist the cow and unborn calf in delivery. An opportunity to practice tube feeding a cadaver calf will also be available. Live heifers/cows will be on site to demonstrate the body condition scoring system.

Advanced Registration Required by December 5, 2017

Registration Fee: $25 per person – Space limited to 25 people.

**Clinic will be cancelled with less than 10 registrations by December 5**
