CALF STUDY: Sarah Mac's research looked at how a cow-calf system could work in pasture-based dairy systems.

This experiment was the first of my thesis, which is focused on optimising the rearing of young stock. This experiment investigated the feasibility of rearing the calf with the cow in a pasture-based setting, and the impact that such a system has on cow behaviour at weaning.
