Flock Health Clubs

Sheep Veterinary Society & Flock Health Club CPD

Coming up in September 2022 - see flyer - book a place

In connection with the expected commencement of the Animal Health and Welfare Pathway for England in 2022, Sheep Veterinary Society representatives have been closely involved in discussions with stakeholders in advisory and co-design groups that have highlighted a potential shortage of sheep vet capacity – particularly thinking of vets with dedicated sheep health and production skillsets.

Flock Heath Clubs were designed to support vets and to fill in gaps in sheep veterinary expertise within practices and so we are working together to co-deliver CPD aimed at both experienced and recently-graduated vets, to develop veterinary skills with respect to encouraging physical and financial flock performance evaluations and flock health planning opportunities.

    "The best thing from our Flock Health Club has been to see sheep farmers working together comparing their basic flock data and highlighting areas for improvement."
