Calving Skills

Calving a cow takes skill and technique, using our anatomically correct cow, ‘Matilda’ and her life-like replication calf, trainees can practice different calving scenarios before the season gets underway.

This course provides trainees with a safe environment to learn the art or refresh their calving knowledge and offers time to practice different calving scenarios. It can be an uncomfortable process using live animals for training, not only because of the lack of ability to visually confirm that the trainee’s technique is up to standard, but also because it can be an uncomfortable experience for live training animals. 

The course includes:

  • Practice of various calving scenarios including breach birth, limb position and posturing
  • Understanding and identification of presentation and delivery

This course provides your team with skills and clear decision making needed for real outcomes.  Providing new skills or refreshing what’s already known.   All of our short courses are designed to keep your team’s skills current.  Find out more about other Agri Training courses here.
