This day is designed for veterinary surgeons and consultants to bring herd mastitis 'cases' for group discussion and gain specialist advice. The day is also designed for new Mastitis Control Plan Deliverers who need to complete their training (previously attended a training 'Day 1' but have yet to attend the second day). Finally, existing Mastitis Control Plan Deliverers will find this day useful as an opportunity to refresh their approach to implementing the Plan on their clients' farms, and benefit from assistance with data interpretation and selection of Plan priorities.

Delegates are invited to bring herd data for discussion, including clinical mastitis, cell count data and/or bacteriology.

For registered AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan Deliverers, this course can be selected as one of your CPD training days included in the cost of your individual or practice subscription.

This course counts as the 'Day 2' to complete training for delivery of the AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan. 

To book, please contact dmcpadmin@qmms.co.uk
