the importance of hygiene
When calves are born their immune system is not fully developed yet. Briefly, this means that a calf is really vulnerable for diseases. In order to reduce the risk of diseases, proper hygiene is essential. Besides the fact that you don’t want your calves to be ill, a disease at young age could have a huge impact on the milk yield as a cow.
