Improve your profits with better health. As part of the Rural Development Programme of England to improve goat health, welfare and farm profitability NADIS has developed a comprehensive health resource for farmers and vets. Click on the health issues affecting your goats and find out more. When you have finished , why not try the quiz and receive a Goat Health Certificate from NADIS. The old saying "prevention is better than a cure" has never been more relevant. Disease prevention is most effective as part of an active veterinary health plan.
Many veterinary practices are using the material to carry out goat health training programmes for their farmers , so contact your vet for more information or go to your regional events page to find out what events are being held by your practice.
The health conditions used for veterinary meetings are marked "Vet KT"..
The online quiz for each condition is accessible via a link at the bottom of each vetKT article. If vets want to print out hard copies of the quiz for seminars etc. the "QUIZ" link downloads a PDF printable version. If a bulletin is marked (part bulletin) it is a part bulletin and comes from a bulletin which covers a group of conditions.
NADIS is working with City and Guilds and this training material can lead to more formalised animal health qualifications if you wish.
The RDPE, programme is jointly funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, DEFRA, EBLEX and Merial Animal Health.
