The webinars will be hosted on the company’s Nexus online portal and will cover clinical topics such as:

  • postmortem/diagnostics and calf pneumonia
  • parasitology – getting the basics right
  • herd health planning – vaccination on farm

Non-clinical topics, meanwhile, include:

  • business skills
  • motivational interviewing techniques – facilitating effective communication between farmers and vets
  • cow signals

Webinar Wednesdays

Webinars take place on the last Wednesday of each month, except August and December when there are no sessions. Each webinar lasts for one hour, including a live “question and answer” session with the presenter.

Vets who are unable to view the live webinar will be able to access the content at a later date, but will not be able to pose questions.

Vets must register on Merial’s Nexus portal ( to access the webinars. Signing-up for individual webinars will ensure vets receive reminder emails before the webinar takes place.
