An article published by AgriLand in Ireland, reminds farmers not to feed ‘waste milk’ to their calves. Waste milk may contain antibiotic residues or high Somatic Cell Counts. Feeding waste milk is a concern not only for calf health and risk of infection, but also for antibiotic resistant bacteria. This reminder comes from Animal Health Ireland and their Calf Care events.
