Barbers Meeting

On Wednesday 19th April Friars Moor hosted a meeting for dairy farmers on behalf of Barbers on the subject of antibiotic usage. We held a discussion and interactive session on how we can reduce the overall usage of antibitoics on dairy farms, including selective dry cow therapy, calf health and transition cow management. In addition to this we discussed how the usage of critically important antibiotics can be reduced and displayed data proving how well this has worked on Friars Moor farms. With antimicrobial resistance such a key global issue it was brilliant to engage with so many of our farmers and talk about practical solutions and how we can all play our part.

We all love our pets and, for 18 years, Friars Moor Veterinary Practice in Sturminster Newton has been giving me the confidence that I was doing the very best I could for mine.
