The first episode focused on providing the best housing environment for calves and and what farmers need to think of when it comes to the price of calves.

In the second episode, the panellists discussed the levels of milk replacer that calves need to be getting this spring. Alongside this, maintaining good hygiene and biosecurity levels on farms was also reviewed.

For the third and most recent episode, the important issue of calf health and how vaccination programmes can be implemented on farms this spring was the main focus.
