Red Calf

By Diann Evans, Windsor Heights, Iowa.

The program will outline overall calving management that includes stages of the normal calving process as well as tips to handle difficult calving situations. Dr. A.J. Tarpoff, Kansas State University Research and Extension beef veterinarian, explains the goals of the event are to increase knowledge, practical skills, and to increase the number of live calves born if they need assistance.
