Registration has opened for a mastitis seminar taking place in November.

The three-day seminar will be led by vets Peter Edmondson and Roger Blowey, who are both fellows of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

It will take place from Sunday, November 8 to Tuesday, November 10 at Hatherley Manor Hotel in Gloucester. Places are limited to 18 people, so early booking is recommended.

The seminar will cover:

  • practical mastitis problem solving skills
  • confidence building on dealing with herds with cell count, clinical mastitis and bactoscan problems
  • marketing your services and generating work from the course
  • understanding how the milking machine works and affects mastitis
  • two farm visits and two “parlour quizzes”
  • interactive group problem solving using two study herds
  • PCR testing, vaccines, teat seals and cluster flushing.

The fee is £760 (no VAT payable) and includes the cost of the hotel conference facilities, all tuition, lunches, coffees and course notes. It does not include accommodation or dinner.

More than 500 vets have attended the course since the first was held in 1990. Past delegates have included vets from China, Australia, Iceland, Argentina, Slovenia and Ireland.
