Wednesday 12th February 2020

QMMS Ltd, Cedar Barn, Easton, WELLS, BA5 1DU

Tutors: Prof Andrew Bradley,  Al Manning

The course introduces the concepts and research behind the AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan, which was published in peer review in 2007, before being rolled out as a national scheme in 2009. Prospective Plan Deliverers will work through the stages of making a herd diagnosis, based on mastitis and cell count records, before using the ePlan software to identify relevant control priorities, using information gathered from a farm assessment. Several herd examples will be used to illustrate the approach and time will be made for discussion of topics including marketing the Plan in your practice, communicating change and reducing antibiotic use in dairy herds.

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.

For further details, contact Katharine Leach on 01749 871171, email dmcp@qmms.co.uk or download a brochure and booking form.

PLEASE NOTE: To qualify as a full Plan Deliverer, delegates must also attend a second day of training, booked separately (dates below)

There will also be a Day 1 and Day 2 course in Scotland this spring - details below.

Wednesday 1st April 2020
QMMS Ltd, Cedar Barn, Easton, WELLS, Somerset

Tutors:  Al Manning, Prof Andrew Bradley

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 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.

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