O ur guest writer in this month’s edition of the CellCheck newsletter is Joe Healy, IFA President. Joe writes about the rewards, in terms of adding value to their milk, for farmers who focus on lowering their SCC. Our monthly tip is about CellCheck Farmer Workshops. Over 230 workshops have been delivered since the commencement of the CellCheck programme, with very positive feedback and impact on farm. Remember, the next and final phase of workshop delivery as part of the Dairy Knowledge Transfer programme will commence on June 19th. Group facilitators that have not yet competed CellCheck Stage 2 training as part of the DAFM-required CPD can do so on June 19th in the Midlands Park Hotel (formerly known as Portlaoise Heritage Hotel). This will be the final Stage 2 training event held in 2017. Please contact the AHI office if interested in attending on 071 9671928.
