Elanco provides platinum support for dairy industry with 'seminar sandwich'


At a time when driving the dairy industry forward has never been so crucial, Elanco Animal Health is delivering educational support.
Its latest commitment to this cause sees Elanco providing platinum sponsorship once again to the Large Herd Seminar in Gloucestershire on the 24th – 26th of June. Among the acclaimed national and international speakers addressing topics under the theme ‘Total Dairy’, will be Elanco’s very own experts kicking-off and closing proceedings with two seminars that delegates can really sink their teeth into.
This year’s Large Herd Seminar is very much back with a vengeance, with the plethora of lectures, workshops and on-farm demonstrations promising both theoretical and practical material which can be applied directly to managing the modern dairy herd. In an exclusive pre-seminar Elanco’s Ruminant Technical Consultant, Mike Christian, will be getting straight down to the nitty-gritty, discussing key ways to defeat one of the biggest challenges faced by the dairy industry - ketosis. The seminar will look at the risk factors, monitoring opportunities and how to manage that all-important negative energy balance, providing an ideal starting point for the rest of the week’s events.
Mike explains, “Of all the metabolic diseases affecting our dairy cows, ketosis is one of the most complex and it can be tough to know which measures will be most successful in conquering it. As knowledge and solutions are continually evolving, it’s never been more important to keep on the cutting edge when it comes to ketosis.” With extensive experience in this field, Mike’s presentation promises to provide vets and producers with the means to help minimise ketosis and maximise productivity.
In a post-seminar workshop entitled ‘Practical ketosis monitoring and prevention’, the Elanco team will round-up the week’s activities in an interactive session looking at proactive steps that vets and their clients can take to keep track of ketosis in large herds. Ways to effectively and easily measure true herd prevalence along with options for positive interventions will take centre stage, being put into context by both a leading vet and producer who will be on hand to share their invaluable experiences of ketosis investigation and management.
Nigel Underwood, Ruminant Business Unit Manager for Elanco, is thrilled to be able to go that extra mile to provide support to the industry, “At Elanco we pride ourselves on creating more than just animal health solutions – we provide knowledge solutions. By educating our customers we see a much greater impact on cattle health, welfare and productivity, which makes events like this so essential.”
For the past eight years the Large Herd Seminar has been a highlight for many in the dairy industry and this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever. To avoid missing out on world-class expertise and the invaluable opportunity to meet others in the industry, those dealing with large dairy herds should visit http://largeherds.com/ to book their place now.
