DAIRY and beef farmers get the chance to put their key questions about Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) to disease expert Richard Booth during two interactive webinars this month.
These will cover the following topics:
April 15 – How do you know if BVD is affecting your herd?
April 22 – How can you achieve a BVD free herd? Dr Booth, a cattle vet currently lecturing in infectious cattle diseases at the Royal Veterinary College, London, has been involved since 2006 with an extensive research project on what is one of the most widespread and potentially devastating infectious diseases for UK cattle herds.
Through his work, he has become one of the leading authorities on all aspects of BVD including its transmission, the impact on farms, and methods of control and eradication.
The 30-minute interactive online sessions take place from 7pm and are free to any dairy or beef farmers that register at www.msd-animal-healthcpd.co.uk
All farmers that register will also receive a free recording of their webinar.
