DMCP: Mastitis Control Plan 'Day 1 Training' 

Wednesday 24th November 2021

Venue: QMMS (Somerset) or Online

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.

The course is aimed at vets and consultants who wish to become registered AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan Deliverer.

Cost of course £200 + VAT. The cost may be covered by remaining CPD allocation for delegates from a Practice currently subscribing to the DMCP.

PLEASE NOTE: To qualify as a full Plan Deliverer, delegates must subsequently subscribe to the Mastitis Control Plan and attend a second day of training.
