Manna Pro Baby Your Babies Photo Contest And Webinar

<p>

In spite of what the&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.grit.com/community/farmers-almanac-offers-frigid-2010-forecast.aspx”>Farmers&rsquo; Almanac</a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.groundhog.org/” target=”_blank”>Punxsutawney Phil</a>&nbsp;predicted about the rest of this winter, in my mind it&rsquo;s time to start thinking about spring and all of the newborn animals scheduled to arrive at the farm. My four-legged moms are expecting baby pigs, calves, lambs, donkeys &ndash; and I am pretty close to setting the year&rsquo;s first batch of fertile eggs in an incubator. The good folks at&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.mannapro.com/”>Manna Pro</a>&nbsp;are also celebrating the season, (and giving away some substantial prizes) with the Baby Your Babies Photo Contest and accompanying educational webinar series.</p>
<p>

</p>
<p>Manna Pro produces high-quality animal nutrition and care products for a broad range of species &ndash; its product lines are perfect for smaller lifestyle farms and rural enthusiasts who raise their animals for reasons beyond just making a profit. I&rsquo;ve used Manna Pro&rsquo;s Calf Manna and various milk replacer products for several decades and they work.</p>
<p>

</p>
<p>&ldquo;Our consumers consider their animals to be more like pets or family members than just livestock,&rdquo; says Manna Pro Marketing Director Jennifer Hojnacki. &ldquo;They want to know as much as possible about keeping their animals healthy, and they are like proud &lsquo;parents&rsquo; when their animals have new babies. The Baby Your Babies promotion gives them a way to learn about important nutrition issues &ndash; and also a way to share their new arrivals with the larger farming community.&rdquo;</p>
<p>

</p>
<p>The Manna Pro Baby Your Babies Photo Contest runs through May 31, 2010. The 3-part Baby Your Babies webinar series runs on consecutive Tuesdays beginning on February 9. Each webinar will be conducted by Manna Pro&rsquo;s Vice President of Nutrition, Dr. Rob McCoy, PhD. The first Manna Pro Baby Your Babies webinar will cover <strong>
<em>Preparing for Newborn Animals</em>
</strong>. Subsequent Manna Pro Baby Your Babies webinar topics will be <strong>
<em>Feeding Milk Replacers&hellip; Why, When and How</em>
</strong> and <strong>
<em>Transitioning to Dry Feed</em>
</strong>.</p>
<p>&nbsp;Each 30-minute Manna Pro Baby Your Babies webinar will begin at 4:30pm CST on the date it is held. People who wish to participate in any or all of the webinars may sign up online by visiting&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.mannapro.com/byb_webinars.html”>Manna Pro’s Website</a>, and clicking on the link for the webinar(s) they are interested in.
