Young stock management is a vital area of production in both the beef and dairy industries. 

They provide income not only from sales but also as replacements in the herd.  A poor start in life will decrease growth rates in the calves delaying their finishing or age at first breeding, but will in the dairy industry decrease the life time milk yield a dairy cow will produce.

Langford Farm Animal Practice provides specific advice regarding young stock management from colostrum management, nutrition, growth rate checks, worming advice, and disease prevention.
