Dairy Calf and Heifer Association Webinar Addresses Immune Response and Rumen Development

Join Dairy Calf and Heifer Association (DCHA) for its next webinar – “Foundational Calf Health: Improving Immune Response and Rumen Development” – set for Aug. 19, at 2 p.m. Central time (U.S./Canada). Craig Louder, High Desert Veterinary Services, and Tyler Spore, MS Biotec, are the presenters for this free, one-hour educational offering.

Health is a critical component of raising calves. Trace minerals play a key role in enhancing vaccine response in calves and how early rumen development can impact weight gain and calf performance. Learn how to better prepare calves to thrive during transition periods and various forms of stress.

During the program, webinar participants will also be introduced to Axiota – a combination of two proven companies joining forces to serve the dairy industry.

Louder joined High Desert Veterinary Services in Jerome, Idaho, after graduating from Washington State University in 2012. Along with two other veterinarians, he provides consultation and veterinary care for large western dairies and calf ranches. In 2018, Louder began consulting part time for Multimin USA.

Raised in Eureka, Kan., Spore grew up working on a diversified cow-calf and row-crop operation. He attended Kansas State University where he obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in animal science. In December 2020, he completed his Ph.D. in animal science/ruminant nutrition at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Spore joined the MS Biotec team as technical services manager in January 2021, where he provides technical support for commercial sales and research efforts.
