Delivery of second phase of CellCheck Farmer Workshops
Scheduling of all the CellCheck Farmer Workshops under the KT programme was completed last month, and delivery of this second phase of workshops also commenced. Approximately 140 workshops will be delivered to discussion groups around the country before the end of the year, so plenty of activity on the horizon. Workshop delivery packs have been put together, and will be issued to all KT group facilitators in advance of your scheduled workshop date. Don’t forget that the USB stick that you received as part of your CellCheck Stage 2 Service Provider Training pack contains additional powerpoint slides, that focus specifically on Dry Cow Therapy. As the year progresses and we get closer to the dry period, you may find it useful to include this material in the course of the workshop presentation. Alternatively, some workshop delivery teams found it useful to include this new material when delivering a workshop to farmers that may have participated in one in the past, albeit 3 or 4 years before. If you are going to include this material, make sure that you have discussed it with all delivery team members before the workshop, so that there are no surprises on the day!
