What is a MilkSure Champion?
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. Most are vets who have completed the BCVA (Great Britain) or AVSPNI (Northern Ireland) MilkSure for Vets training courses. The list includes other professionals working in the dairy industry, for example milk processor agricultural managers, technical managers and quality control officers.
The training increases a wider understanding in this important area. MilkSure Champions are best placed to assist farmers in becoming MilkSure accredited.
Vets do not have to be MilkSure Champions to deliver MilkSure training to their farmers, but it is highly recommended. Those that are included on this list have chosen to increase their knowledge and skills for the benefit of themselves and their farmer clients.
It is important that MilkSure training is delivered by a farmer’s usual vet. This is because they are the ones who will better understand the farm, and take overall responsibility for which medicines are prescribed for that farm. Reducing medicine residues requires strong teamwork between the prescribing vet and the farmer.
If you are a vet in England, Scotland or Wales and would like to become a MilkSure Champion, you may contact the BCVA office directly to book your place on the next available course. In Northern Ireland, courses are run through the AVSPNI.
