CAFRE Calf 2020 – Sustainable Calf Rearing Webinars

October 26, 2020

CAFRE had planned to have an Open Day at the new CAFRE Calf Unit this winter. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the decision has been taken to hold a series of online webinars in place of the open day. The webinars covered various aspects of the design and management of the new CAFRE Calf Unit.

The series of three Calf 2020 online webinars will be held on consecutive Thursday evenings starting at 8.00pm on 19th November. Each webinar included video presentations from two speakers followed by a live question session.

This series of webinars form part of the CAFRE demonstration farm output from the Interreg funded Dairy-4-Future project, a dairy farming sustainability project www.dairy4future.eu.

The online webinar programme is detailed below. If you missed the webinars, you can catch up by clicking on the links below.
