MU Extension livestock specialist Heather Conrow says the clinics include classroom sessions and hands-on training. She also encourages 4-H and FFA youths ages 12 and up to attend.
The clinics teach producers when and how to assist during delivery, when to contact a veterinarian and how to care for the newborn calf.
A “phantom uterus” will simulate techniques used during calving. A cadaver calf provides a realistic demonstration of the many ways the farmer can assist the cow and unborn calf in delivery. Participants also will have an opportunity to practice tube feeding a cadaver calf.
A downloadable PDF registration form is at muext.us/CalvingClinic2021. You can also register in person at 5:30 p.m. on the day of the event. The program begins at 6 p.m.
