Final chance for UK farmers to take part in survey on recognising and treating pain in lame dairy cows

27 August 2021

VETPARTNERS is inviting anyone who works with lame dairy cows to complete a short questionnaire about what they think of certain conditions and how to approach the treatment of various diseases.

The veterinary group, which has practices all over the UK, is running a major project to encourage a team approach to recognising and treating pain in lame dairy cows.

The VetPartners Production Animal Clinical Board Mobility Special Interest Group (SIG) launched Project FEET, which stands for Furthering the Evidence base on cow mobility by Engaging the whole Team, in December 2020.

The aim of the project is to better understand attitudes towards recognising pain and treating it by the whole mobility healthcare team, including farms, foot trimmers, veterinary technicians and vets.

Anyone who works with lame dairy cows has until August 31st to complete a short questionnaire.

Each survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, responses are anonymous, but you can at the end be transferred to put your details into a prize draw to win £100 Love2shop vouchers.
