Calf management after birth is very important because 50% of mortality of newborn calves occurs due to mismanagement. The calf should not be removed immediately from their dams. Calves should be fed with colostrum immediately so that they develop immunity. Cut the navel cord leaving 3-6 inches part from the body and dip it in tincture iodine twice a day until it dries. Dipping helps dry the cord and protects it from infection.
