Reducing Lameness in Dairy Cattle Learn about the infectious and non-infectious types of lameness in dairy cows. The focus will be on ensuring awareness of the different causes of the various types of lameness and how they can require very different approaches for control. The importance of mobility monitoring and prompt action or treatment will be stressed. Treatment protocols will be discussed, along with preventative measures to improve cow health, welfare and productivity. By attending this workshop, you will receive a LANTRA Awards certificate of attendance and Farming Connect CPD record. Thu, 07/11/2019 - 11:00 Thu, 07/11/2019 - 14:30
Lambing Losses - Part 1: Abortion and Nutrition RE-RUN THIS IS A RE-RUN OF THE LAST MEETING Learn about the clinical signs, transmission, diagnosis and monitoring of lamb loss prior to lambing; abortion, nutritional imbalance and prolapses. The focus of this workshop will be on the transmission and diagnosis of Enzootic abortion (EAE) and Toxoplasmosis (the main causes of abortion in the UK), and the biosecurity and biocontainment measures that can be taken to minimise losses as a result of these infections. The workshop will also outline the importance of body condition scoring and correct nutrition in minimising losses due to metabolic disease, prolapses and dystocia. Prevention of infectious abortion, correct nutrition and monitoring of pregnant ewes will result in increased flock health, productivity and profitability. By attending this workshop, you will receive a LANTRA Awards certificate of attendance and Farming Connect CPD record. Mon, 11/11/2019 - 07:30 Mon, 11/11/2019 - 10:30

Understanding Johne’s Disease Workshop Learn about the clinical signs, transmission, diagnosis and monitoring of Johne’s disease. The focus will be on biosecurity and biocontainment strategies that can be implemented in consultation with the veterinary surgeon to minimise the risk of Johne’s disease being introduced into a naïve herd, or to reduce the spread of disease if it is already present on farm. Prevention of introduction and spread of Johne’s disease will result in increased herd health, productivity and profitability. By attending this workshop, you will receive a LANTRA Awards certificate of attendance and Farming Connect CPD record. Tue, 01/10/2019 - 19:30 Tue, 01/10/2019 - 22:30
BVD Workshop Learn about the clinical signs, transmission, diagnosis and monitoring of BVD. The focus will be on the significance of Persistently Infected (PI) animals in disease transmission, and the biosecurity and biocontainment measures that can be taken to minimise the risk of BVD entering a naïve herd, and reduce the spread of disease already on farm. Prevention of introduction and spread of BVD will result in increased herd health, productivity and profitability. By attending this workshop, you will receive a LANTRA Awards certificate of attendance and Farming Connect CPD record. Wed, 04/09/2019 - 07:30 Wed, 04/09/2019 - 10:30
