Providing Training in 2020
We are currently taking expressions of interest for a March 2020 course.
Location will be dependent on those interested in attending.
About the training
Internationally recognised lameness expert, Neil Chesterton, delivers classroom and on-farm training on lameness theory, observing cow flow and herd management, treating lame cows (including iv anaesthesia), track and shed design and conducting a lameness investigation.
This knowledge is then complemented with training delivered by DairyNZ on understanding how to influence change with your dairy farming clients using the Healthy Hoof programme.
Attendees will be able to produce an effective report, understand how to deliver training to clients, appreciate their marketing and coaching role and have access to Healthy Hoof tools, on-going support and DairyNZ resources.
