If you don’t have tickets yet for the 2016 TotalDairy Seminar, you’re in with the wrong herd.
A longstanding and popular event, TotalDairy Seminar routinely attracts renowned farming experts from all over the world. They share research findings and tips on best practice, but the event is packed full of practical workshops too:
“TotalDairy Seminar offers a brilliant opportunity for members of the dairy industry to hear about the latest practical and technical information from globally renowned experts in dairy cow management. It’s a great chance to refresh current knowledge, develop new knowledge and connect with industry peers” – Sam Gayton, Ruminants Business Unit Director, Zoetis - platinum sponsor.
Issues that matter most to dairy farmers
The agenda for TotalDairy Seminar is available to view online at totaldairy.com; the line-up doesn’t disappoint. In between a lecture on starch digestion is a farmer workshop on managing milk fat. Farmers can participate in a workshop on foot trimming, or treatment of mastitis. Throughout the seminar, big names take to the stage to talk about the issues that keep farmers awake at night. Here are just a few who will be joining us this year:
Dr Temple Grandin
It’s a privilege to welcome world-renowned cattle handling expert, Dr Temple Grandin, to TotalDairy Seminar. She joins us to talk about stockmanship and managing stress amongst cattle. Particularly, the importance of acclimating animals to new experiences.
Claim to fame: HBO made a film about her fascinating life history.
Highly regarded Nottingham University Professor, Chris Hudson will talk us through his thoughts on which key performance indicators farmers can look at to track fertility. His goal is to help farmers keep a healthy and profitable herd.
As the price of milk hangs in the balance, farmers are under pressure. Ian Lean offers practical advice to farmers on how they can optimise dry cow health at home, taking into account health and profitability.
Many of our speakers are available to join farmers face-to-face when they step down from the podium. A complementary range of interactive, discussion-based workshops is what makes TotalDairy Seminar an ongoing success, year after year.
