A north Australian symposium on the causes of calf loss and what can be done to minimise them.

Calf loss in beef breeding herds is a global problem causing reduced live weight production and lower profitability. Large studies in recent times have shown the major risk factors to be very different to that which cause calf loss in intensive or temperate region cattle systems. Join Associate Professor, Luis Prada e Silva from the University of Queensland, and other calf loss experts from across northern Australia, for Calf ALIVE, 26 November at Hughenden.

The Calf ALIVE symposium will feature presentations from Dr Geoffry Fordyce, Jarrud Muller, Associate Professor Mark Trotter, Professor Ala Tabor, Dr Karen Eyre, Dr Kieren McCosker, Latino Combra, Dr Michael Flynn, Frank Atherton, Tim Schatz, Professor Michael McGowan and Désirée Jackson.


Please contact A/Prof Luis Prada e Silva for more details and to register, on 07 3346 2166.
