Taurus CPD Courses: Mastitis Control - Implementing the 'QuarterPRO' Initiative with Your Clients 2019

Wednesday 10th July 2019

QMMS Ltd, Cedar Barn, Easton, WELLS, Somerset

Tutors:  Dr James Breen, Dr Andrew Bradley

 

This day is designed for veterinary surgeons and consultants to learn how to implement the new 'Quarter PRO' initiative for mastitis control. Whilst a proven approach to mastitis control exists (the AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan), it has been recognised by an industry forum that a “lower” or “entry level” approach would be beneficial and cost effective on many farms. A new initiative ('Quarter PRO') is proposed, which aims to provide and promote a rapid approach to monitoring and improving udder health, accessible to all dairy farmers. This initiative will provide wider and easier access to elements of the AHDB Mastitis Control Plan and a means of co-ordinating udder health promotion materials.

Delegates will have access to a free CDL converter tool to generate the mastitis and cell count outputs required for the new mastitis Pattern Analysis Tool, developed for AHDB Dairy by QMMS Ltd and the Nottingham University School of Veterinary Medicine and Science. These tools will be used on the day, and therefore delegates are encouraged to bring milk recording CDL files and take part in active discussion on the day.

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

DMCP Courses: Mastitis Control Workshop ('Day 2') 2019

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