Ceva Animal Health has announced two more cattle fertility meeting dates for its young vet initiative, to build on previous success.

The success of last year’s CPD sessions has prompted the two new events.

Part of Ceva’s reprodAction programme, the Building Success Around the Fertility Routine Visit CPD days are for recent graduates or those new to dairy practice.

The two meetings will be held at the Best Western Dryfesdale Hotel in Lockerbie, Dumfries and Galloway on September 22; and the West Lancashire Investment Centre in Skelmersdale on September 23.

They will cover various topics including identifying clients’ goals, setting herd targets and increasing pregnancy rates.

Katherine Timms, Ceva veterinary advisor, said: “We have had such positive feedback from the previous events it has encouraged us to organise more, giving vets from other areas in the UK an opportunity to attend.”

Paddy Gordon, who has a wealth of experience in cattle reproductive management as director of Shepton Veterinary Group, is one of the event leaders. He said: “Cattle reproduction CPD can be complex and is usually theory based; these events aim to cover the basics and, most importantly, how to implement it all practically. This includes how to communicate concepts to farmers, through group discussion and role play, and how to implement treatment protocols practically.”

Vets interested in attending either CPD course can apply via Ceva territory managers; Bryan Hamilton on 07753 447226 or bryan.hamilton@ceva.com for the Lockerbie meeting and Kimberly Campbell on 07831 359128 or kimberly.campbell@ceva.com for the Skelmersdale meeting.
