Essential for anyone who dries off cows - from new recruits to experienced hands.
At Penbode we have fostered a close working relationship with Zoetis - the company who produce Orbeseal. The course is led by our area vet for the company - Andy Tyrer, who started off his career as a farm vet in Holsworthy!
The drying off course is a unique opportunity to receive training directly from the Orbeseal manufacturers: Andy travels down to Holsworthy and takes a small group of farmers and vets through the theory behind teat sealant usage and Selective Dry Cow Therapy, before demonstrating correct usage on a dummy udder - going through every step.
As we all know, drying off cows is not without its risks - incorrect technique can at the very least leave your cows susceptible to infection in the dry period, and at worst cause sudden death due to toxic mastitis.
This course is a great way to double check your own technique, provide formal training for new members of the milking team and to satisfy your milk purchaser requirements.
Each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance.
Monday 10th July 10:30am - 1pm or 12:00 - 2:30pm.
Only £40pp (ex VAT) - includes lunch, practical session and lunchtime talk.
