Date: 5 & 6 December 2018
Venue: SRUC Barony Campus, Parkgate, Dumfries.
This course is for practising vets looking to increase their knowledge on improving the health and performance of the dairy calf and heifer through a preventative health planning approach. The heifer represents the future of the dairy herd, yet nationally losses during rearing are too high and age at first calving could be improved. This represents a significant cost to the UK dairy industry and an opportunity for veterinary involvement. This course, delivered by veterinarians and specialist agricultural advisors, looks at health management, nutrition and general rearing requirements relevant to the modern dairy heifer from birth to the end of the first lactation. Discussion workshops and practical sessions will be included.
Price: £525.00 inc VAT (£437.50 net)
