As part of the BCVA’s commitment to providing CPD during the current restrictions, and following the success of Owen Atkinson’s first Zoom-hosted MilkSure course in April, we will be offering another chance for vets in practice, academia and industry to benefit from this programme on 13th May.
This is a small group (8 maximum) one day online training course that will enable delegates to get more involved in this important area of their clients’ business, as well as review their own procedures.
MilkSure training for dairy farmers has been developed by Dairy UK in conjunction with BCVA. Dairy UK is the organisation which represents the vast majority of milk processors in the UK. Some new milk contracts insist that farmers receive the training from their nominated vet within three months of a bulk tank failure. Other processors have an objective that all their supplying farms undergo this training regularly.
The Red Tractor Dairy Assurance Standards recommends that all farmers receive training in responsible use of veterinary medicines from their vets, with MilkSure training and accreditation cited as an example.
