Seeking sick calves
Barbara Brito Rodriguez is looking for NSW dairy farmers who are willing to allow samples to be collected from sick calves by the Dairy UP team over the first half of 2023.
The team would visit the farm to take nose and rectal swabs for lab analysis. The project is studying new viruses, bacteria and other bugs in sick calves.
