MilkSure Champions – Gold Stars
These individuals have completed a day-training workshop on avoiding medicine residues in milk and responsible use of veterinary medicines in the dairy supply chain. Many are vets who have completed the “BCVA MilkSure for Vets” training course. The list includes other professionals working in the dairy industry, for example milk processor technical and quality control officers.
Vets do not have to be MilkSure Champions to deliver MilkSure training to their farmers. Those that are included on this list have chosen to increase their knowledge in this important area for the benefit of themselves and their farmer clients.
