Bovine CE Opportunities
DFO and industry groups (Lactanet (DHI), OABP, OMAFRA and OVC), in partnership with your CCVA organization, invite you to a seminar with Dr. Tine van Werven, from Utrecht, Netherlands. This initiative is part of the project
"Reducing antibiotic use - considerations around selective dry cow antibiotic treatment"
with funding support from the Canadian Ag Partnership program.
This seminar will take place on Tuesday February 18th 2020, from 6 to 9pm at the Chesterville Legion. (167 Queen St West in Chesterville).
A light supper will be provided.
Please RSVP to Ann Godkin (firstname.lastname@example.org) for planning purposes.
This small group seminar will provide a chance for you to learn what to expect and how to handle the various issues that arise in client's herds when they change the amount of antibiotic they use at dry-off time. The project committee feels it is critical for veterinarians to be involved in the antibiotic use choices producers make. Not all herds should attempt SDCT and those that do need to be helped to have good protocols for cow selection and adequate follow-up to detect adverse events.
Dr. van Werven’s presentation will focus on issues surrounding the adoption of selective dry cow antibiotic treatment in dairy herds in the Netherlands, as a means of reducing antibiotic use in dairy production. In particular she will cover the attitudes of farmers and veterinarians towards this change, the logistics of implementation and the impact on cow health and milk quality (bulk milk SCCs, cow SCCs and clinical mastitis cases).
Speaker background: Dr. Tine van Werven, Associate Professor, Dairy Herd Health Utrecht University.
Tine van Werven is an Associate Professor Dairy Herd Health at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Utrecht, the Netherlands. She also works with the University Farm Animal Practice in Harmelen, the Netherlands. In this large dairy practice, she is responsible for the Herd Health Programs of the more than 300 dairy herds. She has conducted many randomized clinical trials in the field, to obtain more evidence for new and existing therapies. Within the University Farm Animal Practice, she has been working for several years on the responsible use of antibiotics. This practice was one of the first dairy practices in the Netherlands that made an inventory on the use of antimicrobials. Based on those figures they organized workshops and meetings for their farmers to reduce the overuse and misuse of antimicrobials. An antimicrobial reduction of 35% was achieved within five years. In 2013 she was a member of the committee who created the guideline “The use of antimicrobials at dry cow treatment”. This guideline allowed veterinarians and farmers to reduce the antimicrobials at dry cow therapy by 50% without detrimental effect on udder health performance.
