Ambic recently supported Animal Vet Services, (www.avshayle.co.uk) a large animal vet practice in the South West of England, which organised a dairy farmer’s meeting on mastitis and dry cow therapy.
The guest speaker was Andy Biggs BVSc, MRCVS, who is a leading expert on mastitis and has travelled extensively, consulting on the subject in countries as far afield as China and Chile. Fresh from TV and radio interviews with the BBC that day, Andy covered targeted antibiotic treatment for drying off cows before calving, cleanliness in the parlour and application of different treatment regimens for the dairy cow.
Mark Cinderey, Ambic’s International Sales Manager attended the event and spoke to around 40 dairy farmers who attended the event at The Smuggler’s Inn in St Erth.
The event was sponsored by a number of companies active in the dairy industry, including Ambic.
