Students wanting to experience a calf can:
Calves and lambs are starting to appear around the district which means it won’t be long before calf club time!
The Vet Centre offers free vaccination for calf club animals. We hold a special day at our clinics where anyone is welcome to bring their animal for us to examine and vaccinate. The date of these days is to be confirmed closer to the time. We are also always readily available for any health concerns relating to calf club animals.
We also offer talks to the children regarding care of animals, etc. We can combine a vaccination day at the school with the talk if you are interested. Let me know and we can arrange a day and time that suits you.
Please let me know if I can be of any assistance at all during calf club time.
