MilkSure Initiative

Wednesday, 13 September 2017 - 4:09pm

As you may already know, MilkSure is an industry initiative, aimed at reducing the number of bulk tank failures and demonstrating the responsible use of antibiotics within the dairy industry.

It takes the form of training 2 training sessions, delivered by our farm vets.  

  • The first section is based around the use of antibiotics, withdrawal periods (including for cascade use) and causes of bulk tank failures.
  • The second section involves drawing up a farm specific plan to decrease the risk of residues in milk and use antibiotics more effectively.

We are looking to run the first part of the course in a group session, to spread the cost, and the farm plan can then be drawn up with your usual vet.

Please let us know if you are interested in this, we will then set a date for the group session. 

Additional information can be found on the MilkSure Website, alternatively, please call the practice for further details 01363 772860
