2018/2019 Calving School Locations

The program will outline the normal processes of calving. A.J. Tarpoff, K-State Research and Extension beef veterinarian, said the goals of the calving schools are to increase knowledge and practical skills, and increase the number of live calves born.
The schools will also share tips on when and how to intervene to assist the cow and how those times may be different when dealing with young heifers. Presenters will demonstrate proper use of calving equipment on life-size scale.
