Did you know that maternity pens are critical to the life of the cow, calf , and human? See all the work that goes into the birth of a calf and what a farmer must do to prepare for this new life! See if you can pick the best pen for Cow and Calf.
In the maternity pen, lessons range from identifying the stages of labor and setting up the "maternity room," to have effective calf and cow care after delivery. Students will learn about the 3 stages of labor and their signs. They will be able to judge different designs of maternity pens and discuss what happens right after a calf is born.
