Animal Health and Welfare Training Workshops
Do you have a specific animal health disease or issue that is having an impact on not only your stock but your business performance too?
*Please note: due to the Coronavirus we are offering a blended approach to workshop delivery. Workshops will continue to be delivered digitally where possible in conjunction with local vet practices. Face to face animal health and welfare training workshops will resume from 1st September 2020, primarily being workshops that can be held outdoors/in a large agricultural building. We will continue to update you on any developments.*
