Product & Health Review
All our clients have the opportunity to take advantage of a on farm production review. A trained Calf Company consultant will visit the unit and give a full appraisal of current feeding and housing systems. This will identify which products and services are necessary to achieve the required production targets. The production review also establishes which particular feeding system is suitable for your unit, taking into account calving pattern and labour availability.
