When calves are born their immune system is not fully developed yet. In a nutshell, this means that a calf is really vulnerable. In order to reduce the risk of diseases, proper hygiene is essential. Besides the fact that you don’t want your calves to fall ill, a disease at young age also has a huge impact on the milk yield when the calf is grown.
