Farmer training

BVD Stamp It Out

 

We are always keen to share our knowledge with farmers and to help them upskill in all areas of animal health and welfare. Whilst staff recruitment and retention is a huge challenge for lots of dairy farmers, we believe that working with all farm staff to increase their skills and knowledge will lead to a more fulfilling job. This in turn leads to better staff retention and a positive impact on herd health and performance.

We strive to be seen as approachable to all levels of farm staff and we recognise the benefit of being open and to provide honest feedback, we encourage our clients to see us as part of their farm team.

Our training courses cover a wide variety of areas including:

  • Artificial insemination
  • Advanced herdspersons
  • Udder health
  • Milking routine
  • Youngstock
  • Calving techniques & the newborn calf
  • Infectious disease
  • Ultrasound scanning
  • Data analysis
  • Foot trimming
  • Mobility
  • Nutrition

We also work closely with a practice in Somerset, Evolution Farm Vets who also provide a variety of farmer training programmes. Their courses can also be booked through us.

Bespoke courses can also be provided on an individual client or farm, contact us for more detail.
