Free TB workshops for farmers

The events will include classroom teaching on the TB situation in England, current control measures and TB transmission routes and epidemiology.

 

Badger ecology and risk reduction for cattle-to-cattle and badger-to-cattle transmission and risk-based training will also be included, followed by an interactive farm walk visiting work stations where participants will be able to apply the knowledge gained from the initial classroom sessions.

 

Six dates and venues have been confirmed:

 

  • Tuesday, November 15: Harper Adams University, Shropshire
  • Tuesday, November 22: Myrescough College, Preston
  • Tuesday, December 6: Herefordshire and Ludlow College (Holme Lacy campus)
  • Tuesday December 13: Reaseheath College, Cheshire
  • Wednesday January 18: Sparsholt college, Hampshire
  • Wednesday February 1: Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester

 

The Government’s Chief Veterinary Officer Nigel Gibbens welcomed the workshops, saying: “Biosecurity is a key part of the Government’s 25-year plan to eradicate bovine TB in England and I would encourage farmers who can to sign up for one of these events, which are a great opportunity to hear about measures farmers can take to improve their on-farm biosecurity and build the resilience of their businesses.”

 

Farmers who would like to take part can book a place online at www.farmskills.co.uk/tb-biosecurity-workshops/.

 

All events will start at 10am. Check the Farmskills website for more dates as they are added.
