Calf rearing – Agricology Vlog December 2019

Richard Smith, Farms Manager for Daylesford Organic, explains how they rear their Friesian calves at Daylesford. This includes having a calf stay with its mum for 6 days – which allows it to take as much colostrum as it likes from its mum and gives it a fantastic start. Calves also have fresh clean barley straw from the first day. Once they’re weaned they continue to feed them milk twice a day – for the first 12 weeks of life.
