Certificate in Animal Wellbeing (Dairy)
Certificate in Animal Wellbeing (Dairy) - Level 4
The Certificate in Animal Wellbeing (Dairy) – Level 4 – has been developed by QCONZ in collaboration with UCOL, Fonterra and DairyNZ.
Designed for owners, managers and 2ICs, this dairy cattle animal wellbeing training programme goes beyond welfare compliance, and focuses on the benefits to be gained through affordable, practical, good animal care practices.
In addition to learning a simplified version of condition scoring and detection of early signs of lameness, the course covers heat stress management, time budgeting and animal wellbeing planning.
The training involves some on-line learning, a one-day workshop, followed by skills practice and an on-farm assessment.
