Brand new course for 2019 designed for beginner smallholders. The course covers the relevant legislation with particular reference to the medicines and movements regulations. We will review handling of pigs, sheep and poultry and a basic introduction on TB testing cattle. There will be an introduction to the common ailments affecting these species, with a particular focus on relevant vaccinations. In the afternoon there will be a visit to a nearby established smallholding to chat further about housing and handling facilities and to share top tips.
