Automated feeders can feed pre-weaned calves more milk without increasing labor, but did you know the most significant advantage is customizable weaning plans? For this webinar, Melissa Cantor will cover milk-feeding strategies, types of automated feeding systems, examples of successful milk programs, and ways to manage the disease and maximize the use of automatic feeder data to manage dairy calves.
