Subtropical Dairy Programme FNC NSW ‘Healthy Hooves’ On-farm session

March 16 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

Free

Andres Ardila Avila, from the UQ Gatton Vet School will facilitate a hands-on workshop focusing on ‘healthy hooves’ in our dairy herds.

Why bother with ‘healthy hooves’?
Lame cows take time, energy and skill to treat properly.
Lame cows represent a financial cost to your farm business and, therefore, impact on profitability.
Lame cows produce less milk, lose weight, and take longer to cycle.
Reducing the number of lame cows in your herd requires a long-term, planned approach that is supported by the whole farm team.
Andres has planned a day around discussing the concept of ‘healthy hooves’ on our dairy farms in the morning session, followed by a hands-on practical session to make sure participants have some confidence around applying the concepts learnt and practicing the skills and techniques used on farm.

RSVP:
By Wed, 31st January to Alicia Richters to secure your spot, 0427 916 650 or alicia@subtropicaldairy.com.au

The size of the group will be kept to a manageable number to allow some practical hands-on coaching.
