The knowledge on adequate colostrum feeding of newborn calves is strikingly inadequate amongst smallholder dairy farmers worldwide. This was one of the main conclusions of the recent NLF webinar on natural calf management organized on 31st August 2021. Many farmers mistakenly believe that calf diarrhea is the result of colostrum feeding, rather than a way to prevent it. This finding has inspired AgroEco to start developing a learning video on this topic, for dairy farmers worldwide – which we will share soonest.
