  • Experienced veterinarian and farm advisor Dr. Rob Drysdale shared tips for successful calf management.
  • Biosystems engineer Dr. Mario Mondaca from VES-Artex introduced global trends and solutions for providing proper housing conditions for calves.
  • Tõnu Põlluäär, Dimedium's Cattle Breeding Project Manager, and Daniela Vasiliu, a representative of Alta Genetics, discussed the potential of genetic data and data processing.
  • The official part of the Symposium was concluded by emeritus professor Mare Pork from Tallinn University, who delivered an engaging talk on effective people management, highlighting the teachability of joy and the critical role of maintaining a positive attitude throughout life.

The Symposium was hosted by Dimedium's client manager Enelin Dede and Smart Farm representative Kristjan Reinhold.
