The clinics teach producers when and how to assist during delivery, when to contact a veterinarian and how to care for the newborn calf.

Presentations 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.

A “phantom uterus” will simulate techniques used during calving. A cadaver calf provides a realistic demonstration of the many ways the farmer can assist the cow and unborn calf in delivery. Participants also will have an opportunity to practice tube feeding a cadaver calf.

Register by Nov. 8. Details are on the Facebook pages for MU Extension in CharitonHoward and Randolph counties.

A downloadable PDF registration form is at muext.us/CalvingClinic2021. You can also register in person at 5:30 p.m. on the day of the event. The program begins at 6 p.m.
