Farm Health Planning at the Dairy Event 2007

Farm Health Planning, a major new exhibition specifically designed to encourage farmers to introduce proactive measures to help manage herd disease and improve their livestock’s overall performance will feature at Dairy Event 2007.

Organised by the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers, Dairy Event 2007 will be held at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry on Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 September.

The exhibition which supports Farm Health Planning, the industry led initiative funded by Defra, will occupy a dedicated area and take in six subject areas: lameness, fertility, mastitis, young stock management, buying in stock and the costs of disease. A series of related presentations and practical demonstrations will be staged throughout the two day period, including hoof trimming, udder health and cow condition.

“We are pleased to introduce Farm Health Planning to the Dairy Event,” says Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers’ chief executive, Nick Everington. “While we are aware that many farmers already plan for their livestock’s health and understand the financial benefits of a healthy herd, proactive farm health planning could provide real benefits for them, in terms of the health and welfare of livestock, and the profitability and sustainability of their farms. Disease is not inevitable and over time we hope to see real improvements across the industry as a result of this joint venture between Government and industry.” He adds: “We are optimistic that the Farm Health Planning exhibition at the Dairy Event will make a significant contribution towards achieving that goal.”
