Lameness is an important cause of poor welfare and economic loss in the UK dairy industry, and these two essential February CPD courses from BCVA will help to improve your ability to diagnose and treat the cause, advance your understanding of mobility scoring, give you confidence in setting up a professional scoring service, and qualify you as a Mobility Mentor.
The first course, delivered by Dr Nick Bell, takes place on 24th February at Coleg Gwent in Usk. This one-day workshop will explore the various applications of mobility scoring, teach you to effectively evaluate the signs of lameness, test your sensitivity, manage targets, and lead you toward inclusion on the Register of Mobility Scorers (RoMS).
The workshop on the following two days, when Nick will be joined by Owen Atkinson, will result in qualification to apply to become a Mobility Mentor and deliver the AHDB Healthy Feet Programme. This is now in its second phase, offering better tools and advanced materials. The overall aim of this course is to improve the consistency of individual scorers and provide an overview of the science underpinning scoring. A farm visit is included in order to put all that theory into practice, giving you the opportunity to work-through some of the real-life challenges of developing a plan.
