Wednesday 18th May 2022


QMMS, Cedar Barn, Easton, Wells, Somerset

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 will be expected to prepare a herd case example, including clinical mastitis and cell count data as well as bacteriology if available, and mastitis control 'ePlan' and give a short informal presentation.

Run by Taurus CPD, this course costs £200.00 + VAT.

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.
