Coccidiosis can significantly decrease growth of dairy heifers if not controlled.  Recent work at the UW-Madison Marshfield Ag Research Station investigated the use of potential alternative control methods and the effects on heifer growth and health. Matt Akins will discuss the study results and lesson learned in coccidiosis control. Jackie McCarville will cover “Keeping the Calf Kitchen Clean: A Look at Cleanliness and Sanitation.” In this presentation she will discuss how to keep calves and feeding equipment clean including, a look into making sure you have the right tools for the right pathogen.
