This is a hands-on elective in which students participate in the weaning management at the USMARC. Students will be involved with processing, feeding, finding, and treating sick calves. Additionally, students will be introduced to developing weaning rations and managing feed delivery. Students will also learn how to develop vaccination and treatment protocols and each student will have as an objective the development of their own vaccination and treatment protocol template. As time allows, students will visit commercial feedyards and cover production management topics.
Students will need to bring:
- Two pairs of coveralls (to be washed daily)
- Overshoes or Rubber Boots (must not have buckles or laces)
- Student ID / Badge
Please bring appropriate footwear to change for use in the field or classroom and residence hall.
The Weaning Management Elective begins Monday at 8 a.m. unless students are notified otherwise.
