Next Wednesday, the 2nd of May, we are holding our very first meeting for our All Year Round Calvers! 

This is the exciting start of a St Boniface Vets Dairy Discussion and Benchmarking Group. 

For our first meeting we will be looking at fertility.  We have done some benchmarking, so you can see how you are doing compared with your colleagues and hopefully this will form a basis for some good and healthy discussions and sharing of experiences/ideas.
 
After this, there will follow more meetings throughout the year, with hopefully some farm walks and discussion/benchmarking on different topics.
 
We have been running a similar group for our autumn calvers for a few years now, which everybody seems to really enjoy and value.
 
Please come along next week.  It is FREE and we will provide a bite to eat too.  Starting at 11am, finishing at 1pm.
 
If you are interested in being part of this group, please give Jess a call 01363 772860.
 
NB If you are keen to join the club, but can't make it this time, then please let us know.

You only need to save 1 calf or prevent 1 call-out to pay for this - Handy tips guaranteed!

This is not just aimed at beginners, but for everybody involved in calving cows.

The workshop will start at 10:30am with a presentation, followed by a hands-on practical session after lunch.

We will cover areas including:-

Different stages of a normal calving
When to interfere
Reasons of calving problems 
How to deal with them 
Common problems after calving

In the practical session, you will get to identify and correct different presentations on a calving simulator, using real calves.

Due to the practical aspect (we have 2 simulators), we will limit the places to 6-8 people, so everyone will get enough practice.

The cost will be £75 + VAT per person, including lunch.

All FarmSkills courses are taught in groups of 6-8, to allow everyone to get the most from the course.  The trainers are Lantra approved and all delegates will receive a FarmSkills certificate on completion of the course.
