What is a MilkSure Registered Vet?
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. They are vets who have completed the BCVA (Great Britain) or AVSPNI (Northern Ireland) MilkSure-for-Vets training courses.
The training increases a wider understanding in this important area. Unless a farm registered before November 2020, MilkSure training for farms must be delivered by MilkSure Registered Vets, the register of whom is kept by BCVA.
Vets must be MilkSure Registered Vets to deliver MilkSure training to their farmers. Those vets 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 preferable that MilkSure training is delivered by a farmer’s usual vet, or a vet from the same practice. The farm risk assessment should be done with a farms usual vet, who might not be a MilkSure Registered Vet, but must be under the guidance of a MilkSure Registered Vet within the same vet practice. This is because the farm’s usual vet will be the ones who will better understand the farm, and can 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 and would like to become a MilkSure Registered Vet, you may contact the BCVA office directly to book your place on the next available course, which are now available as online workshops.
