You are invited to our evening meeting for all Dairy farmers
Wednesday 8th March 2023
7.00pm (for a drink and a pastie, followed by meeting at 7.30)
Thelbridge Cross Inn
Pete Orpin FRCVS, the chair of the National Johnes Action Group technical committee, will present
the latest progress with the National Johnes Management Plan.
James Hanks, from Pan Livestock, has been given test data from all of our farms and crunched it to show where progress has been made and where it hasn’t. We will discuss what works in Johnes control and what is most challenging.
There has been considerable progress with the control of Johnes disease, but is eradication possible? Using results and data from our own farms (anonymised!) Pete will show successes and failures and why Johnes Disease still creates a hidden hazard to our cattle.
Out new surgery at Seckington Cross, Winkleigh (the site of the old Zukis Café) opens on Monday March 6th. All our services and medicine supplies etc previously provided from Hillmans in the Square will now be provided from Seckington Cross. There is ample parking, better facilities and generally more room. Same people, same phone number, same welcome.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to Witheridge 01884 860236 or Winkleigh 01837 83240 so that we can organise drinks and pasties for all. You are welcome to bring farming friends and neighbours, but please let us know numbers.
