Dealing with stresses cold has on newborn calves

-A A +A
By Tommy Yankey

When the weather is predicted to be bitterly cold, producers should take extra care of newborn calves to ensure their survival.

A calf’s body temperature often falls below normal in extremely cold conditions due to a slow or difficult birth (dystocia) followed by delayed standing and nursing.  Returning the calf’s core body temperature to normal (100 degrees F for newborn calves) then maintaining that core temperature is of primary importance.  If at all possible, bring close-up cows indoors to calve in a heavily bedded, clean pen.
