    Gain control of infectious diseases on farm

    Future-proof your farm with improved understanding and control measures for diseases.

    MSD Animal Health is proud to bring members a new angle to their previous module with further focus on controlling diseases. The main disease focus will be BVD, M. bovis and Johnne’s disease.

    This interactive session with qualified vets will ensure participants understand not only what BVD, M.bovis and Johnne’s disease are, but also practical approaches to controlling these diseases on farm.

    Your key take-aways will cover:

    1. Develop/update/troubleshoot your farm’s BVD control plan – then implement it!
    2. Implement strategies to reduce Johnne’s disease transmission on your farm
    3. Gauge your farm’s M. bovis risk, then identify and eliminate your highest risk actions

    We recommend this two-and-a-half-hour workshop to anyone interested in understanding the principles of biosecurity and managing infectious disease risk on their farm.

    9.30am Registration | 10.00am Start | 12.30pm Finish
    Light refreshments will be provided. Please advise of any food allergies.

    Presented by: MSD Animal Health’s veterinary technical advisors

    FarmIQ are proud to bring to members a practical workshop which covers Staff Management and Planning, Health & Safety and Pasture Management.

    Staff management and planning

    Organising and looking after people can be quite a juggling act in a busy farm operation.

    There are so many considerations, including task management, farm plans, timesheets and rosters, and running an online farm diary.

    With all this to think about how can you be sure you are looking after your staff and contractors, and getting the right thing done at the right time?

    Recognising that digital tools can save time, reduce hassle and help with good communication is a step in theright direction.

    Let FarmIQ show you the range of smart FarmIQ tools for managers, staff and contractors.

    Health and safety

    How do you keep health and safety at the forefront of your farm operations and cover compliance requirements too?

    Take farm safety seriously and do the right thing – recognise that looking after the team is key in farming today.

    One common misconception is that the road to Health and Safety compliance is long and paved with a lot of unnecessary paperwork.

    This can be avoided if you work smarter, by creating living, digital documents and records that are easily shared, providing a simple  opportunity to get your staff involved.

    Let FarmIQ show you a range of Health and Safety tools that give you something different and get insights into the benefits of integrated online recording and reporting.

    Pasture management

    Balancing feed with animal demand underpins milk production, so it’s at the heart of dairy farm management.

    It is crucial that your cows have the right amount of feed available to enable them to reach maximum milk production – clearly not something that you want to leave to chance.

    FarmIQ can help to remove this uncertainty by walking you through a range of tools and calculators which will help you to track your pasture covers, growth, and production rates.

    Allowing you to be confident that you will have the right amount of feed available to maintain your desired milk production levels for the entire season.


    Timing: 9.30am Registration | 10.00am Start | 2.30pm Finish

    Attendees are encouraged to bring along a laptop or device to participate in online activities.

    Morning tea and a light lunch will be provided, please note any food allergies when registering.
