Information for host farmers

To host the one day training workshop we need access to the following on your farm:

  • A copy of your biosecurity protocols that we can email to all trainees coming on-farm for the day.
  • A Hoof Treatment Crush (we supply an additional three crushes for the day);
  • 15-20 cows for trimming (lame or long/untidy claws) – to be available from 10am;
  • Use of facilities between 9am and 3pm.  We can be a bit flexible with start and finish times but do need a 6 hour training window for the workshop;
  • Notification of any Non-Smoking areas;
  • The correct physical address of the shed and the Farm Supply number.
