With only one working day before the Digital Dermatitis Workshop at Greenmount Campus takes place, it is important that producers get their registrations into Samantha at Thompsons by ringing 028 9035 1321.
Spaces are limited to ensure that everyone gets the best out of the day, so it is important to confirm attendance – which will also assist for catering purposes – as a light lunch will be provided upon completion of the workshop.
Every tour will take approximately two hours with producers moving in groups of no more than 50 at a time.
Tours will be going at 40 minute intervals following an 11.00am start until the last two hour tour at 1.00pm which will ensure the milking of the Future Herd can be carried out as normal following the event.
Using a combination of practical and academic knowledge the following industry experts will cover all aspects of digital dermatitis. As a world class speaker on DD in the dairy herd, Dr Arturo Gomez will present his findings to those attending the event.
