EU: EFSA advice on calves‘ contact with mother

The EU Food Safety Authority (EFSA) states in an advice to the European Commission that scientific evidence shows that calves with limited contact with their mother frequently suffer from isolation stress and an inability to suckle. To improve their welfare, the young animals should be kept with the dam for a minimum of one day, although longer contact is recommended due to the welfare benefits for both calf and cow.
