Plenary lecture entitled: 
Understanding cattle for better productivity, health and welfare

Moderator of the session: 
Should we house calves individually or in group
Housing calves individually may protect them from calf diarrhea, but are we actually reducing their resistance to disease by doing that? And how is their welfare and consumer views affected by individual housing?
