National Youngstock Conference

Harper Adams University – 27th July 2022

The calf rearing period is the most crucial time for any livestock system, with success in later life being greatly determined by the inputs and management of the new-born calf. Research has shown that the way an animal is managed and how it performs during its first few months of life will affect how well it performs later, be that as milk production in the dairy sector or as finishing performance for beef animals.

The National Youngstock Conference (NYC) is set to provide practical advice on the key areas of calf management and help support dairy and beef producers to optimise calf, welfare, and growth to ensure lifetime productivity. This is a one-day event, held at Harper Adams University in Shropshire, 9.00am – 4.30pm. VetPartners has 2 vets speaking at this event.

CHECS Health Scheme Farm Visits

HiHealth Herdcare Members


Please note that we have been informed that CHECS intends to re-start farm visits of farms belonging to CHECS Health Schemes in May.


During the Covid 19 pandemic, visits had to be put on hold, but now as much of everyday life is returning to normal, CHECS feels that it is the appropriate time to re-start.


We will be providing CHECS with a list of all our current members from which they will select farms at random to visit. They will contact you in advance by telephone to advise that your farm has been selected so please don’t worry that they will turn up unannounced. During the farm visit, it is likely that the auditor would like to check your CHECS herd accreditation certificate, if you have one, and also discuss biosecurity in relation to farm boundaries and added animals.


If you have any further questions regarding this please contact the HiHealth Herdcare office by email at [email protected] or by phone on 0131 440 2628 and speak to one of the advisors.
