DairyCo will be running a two-day mobility mentor training course on 13-14 April in Evershot, Dorset. The training covers all the skills required for a mentor to successfully implement the DairyCo Healthy Feet Programme on farm.

Kate Cross, product manager at DairyCo, says: “As the training covers the hows and whys of delivery, we would expect those looking to train as mobility mentors to have a thorough understanding of the biology of cows' hooves, as well as a deep appreciation of a dairy cow’s behaviour and management. Mentors will, therefore, be vets who have experience in dairy herd health (minimum of two years’ qualified), or are licensed NACFT hoof trimmers.

“This training will make it easier for farmers to access a broadened pool of mentors who can deliver the DairyCo Healthy Feet Programme.”

The two-day CPD costs £535 plus VAT. For more information, contact healthyfeet@dairyco.ahdb.org.uk
