VET CPD on OPA scanning 4/Oct

Another OPA scanning CPD event at Moredun on Tuesday 4th October.

A number of farmers are requesting screening of sheep for OPA (Jaagsiekte) either before or after sale.  This is your chance to be able to provide this service to your clients and also to learn about the possibility of flock screening for OPA as part of a test-and-cull programme.  

If you would like to attend our next course on Tuesday 4th October then please complete the attached form and return it with your payment.

There is a maximum of 12 per course so register as soon as possible to ensure a place.

We apologise for the short notice but unfortunately it will always be necessary with this particular course as we need to identify enough OPA cases for your training but do not want to compromise the sheep’s welfare by keeping them going for long after diagnosis. 

If you cannot make this date you can register an interest to be the first to know about the next course, although there will always be only about 2 weeks notice.
