Understanding the Use of Anaerobic Digestates on Scottish Farms (Kilsyth)

Location: Coachman Hotel 4 Parkfoot Street, Kilsyth G65 0SP

Time: 11:00 - 14:30

Cost: Free but booking essential

Want to find out more about accepting and spreading anaerobic digestate products on-farm from large-scale AD plants?

Anaerobic digestion

There is increasing pressure on farmers to accept new types of organic materials for land spreading. Anaerobic digestion (AD) products can be cost-effective sources of nutrients and may improve the fertility and quality of soil. Therefore, they have a potential benefit to farmers.

SRUC are hosting a free meeting featuring presentations and an open forum for farmers and stakeholders to discuss using anaerobic digestates covering the questions:

  • What is anaerobic digestion and what are the products?
  • What is the nutrient value of digestates?
    • What are the rules and regulations in Scotland?
    • What about on-farm AD plants?

Speakers from SAC Consulting:

  • Bill Crooks, Soil and Water Consultant
  • Samantha Dolan, Soil Consultant
  • Gavin Elrick, Soil and Water Consultant
  • John Farquhar, Renewables Consultant

All welcome – free parking – lunch provided – registration essential for catering.  Either email FBSStirling@sac.co.uk or call 01786 450 964 to book your spot.

Selective Dry Cow Therapy on Scottish Dairy Farms

Date: 27th November 2019

Location: Radstone Hotel 3 Ayr Rd, Shawsburn, Larkhall ML9 2TZ

Time: 10:00 - 15:00

Cost: Free

This conference is part of a KTIF project sponsored by the Scottish Government and lead by SAC Consulting, in conjunction with Zoetis, Muller and the University of Edinburgh.

Dairy cattle in shed

The project aimed to reduce antibiotic use through the use of selective dry cow therapy (SDCT) and has involved dairy farms in Aberdeenshire and Ayrshire. Their results have been closely monitored over a two year period to evaluate the effect of SDCT on mastitis rates and dry period performance and these will be presented and discussed. 

Keynote speaker: Dr James Breen, University of Nottingham and EBVC

This is a great opportunity to hear from Dr James Breen, a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon’s Recognised Specialist in cattle health and production and one of the team behind the AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan. James divides his time between the University of Nottingham Veterinary School and working for the Evidence Group and will discuss
the important factors for making selective dry cow therapy a success.

The results of a three year project looking at reducing antibiotic use through selective dry cow therapy and the effect on udder health in Scottish dairy herds will also be presented.

Project Findings:

  • The Effect of Selective Dry Cow Therapy on Udder Health, Lorna MacPherson, SAC Consulting
  • Antibiotic Use and Welfare Initiatives, Lucy Squire, Müller
  • Selective Use of Antibiotic Dry Cow Therapy in Dairy Herds: Research Evidence, Cow Selection and Monitoring Outcomes, James Breen, University of Nottingham and EBVC
  • Selective Dry Cow Therapy – A Farmer’s Perspective, Bruce Mackie, Rora Dairy
