Healthy Livestock aims to reduce the incidence of mastitis in dairy herds across the south west, through the use of DairyCo Mastitis Control Plan (DCMCP). It is delivered to farmers by a trained registered plan user from across the region to create a control plan specific to individual farm requirements.
How you access this service:
It is encouraged that you include all your farm staff that are involved with your dairy routine to be involved with the control plan process.
Mastitis 1 (On farm session)
You will be taken through the DairyCo Mastitis Control Plan with your vet or consultant; this will include:
Mastitis 2 (On farm session)
Your vet/consultant will take you through the results of their findings from the first visit for Mastitis 1. From the results you can then work with your vet/consultant to put together a plan of action to help reduce the incidence of Mastitis.
Mastitis 3 (On farm session)
Your vet/consultant will visit you on farm to review the control plan that was put together, review mastitis data and suggest any further changes that can be implemented.
There is 70% funding available to farmers for each section of this strand.
Please liaise with your vet or adviser in the first instance or alternatively Healthy Livestock can be contacted on 0845 458 7485 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
