Summary translation

Des productrices et producteurs bio innovants ont développé des systèmes d’élevage et d’engraissement pour leurs veaux qui, grâce à une détention et une alimentation conformes aux besoins de l’espèce, ne nécessitent que rarement des antibiotiques. Cette fiche technique passe en revue les différents systèmes et présente des mesures concrètes pour réduire l’utilisation d’antibiotiques et protéger la santé des veaux. En outre, la publication décrit les particularités des systèmes d’élevage des veaux sous la mère ou sous des vaches nourrices, en exposant les différentes possibilités d’engraissement et en présentant des pratiques visant à faciliter le sevrage des veaux d’élevage et des remontes d’engraissement.
