Date: Tuesday 4th May 2021
Talk by Kathryn Hart BVSc BSc cert AVP(Cattle) MRCVS. Kat joined George Vet Group in September 2011 after studying at Bristol, where she intercalated in microbiology. Kat's main passion is dairy young stock rearing. She launched The George Heifer Rearing Scheme in April 2012.
Kat was recently awarded a MSD Ruminant Bursary to investigate colostrum cleanliness and its effect on calf immunity. Kat has presented a paper at BCVA 2014, as well as having had a number of articles both in the Farmers Guardian and Dairy Farmer. She has been working with MSD and their campaign Keeping Britain's Young stock Healthy and in 2016 achieved her Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Cattle).
Youngstock are so often the forgotten age of cattle on farm, however one of the highest costs to the farmer. This talk will focus on dairy youngstock but also cover some parts of the beef suckler herd and calf rearer/grower problems. We are often called out in the midst of an outbreak but how to change that into regular planned visits focused on planning and changing management procedures and protocols. I will touch on motivating the farmer and what targets can we achieve and how to monitor them.
