You know that the stress of weaning can make young cattle sick.

You no longer have to feel helpless in the fight against infections that arise in young cattle triggered by stressful weaning. In Canada, a simple nose tag has been developed to reduce weaning stress. The calf is fitted with a Quiet Wean nose tag. It prevents it from suckling, but it still has the comfort of it's mothers company. Around a week later, the tag is removed as the calf is weaned. They seem to cope with loosing their mother far better. They don't loose mother and milk on the same day. The video below explains the science.
