Lantra will be leading the taster sessions at the Training Hub at Dairy-Tech 2024, with experts on hand to advise on safe working when handling and moving cattle, the use of machinery and general livestock health.
Situated on Stand E14, the sessions will be delivered in partnership with Lantra approved training provider, Jimmy Hughes Training. Expert advice and guidance will be provided throughout the day, as well as during fixed sessions.
Lantra’s Head of Industry Partnerships (Rural), David Fisher, will be on the stand to answer any questions about training and qualifications.
David said: “Lantra has a suite of training products for the dairy workforce ranging from heavy machinery, cattle foot trimming, calf management to cattle handling and transportation, and health and safety. I am, therefore, hopeful that the stand will be busy with visitors and enquiries about what we have on offer.’’
‘’I am also keen to engage with industry about customised training courses tailored towards specific needs, and also the gaps in training provision, where there may be a need for short courses which farmers and on-farm workers can accommodate alongside their work commitments. The beauty of our short courses is the knowledge and skills can be applied as soon as people walk back through the farm gate’
The programme for the day at the Training Hub consists of:
- Health & Safety on Farms at 11am
- Better Livestock Handling for You and Your Herd at 12pm
- Livestock Health: What to do when you spot a problem at 2pm.
Dairy-Tech is a biennial exhibition which is being held on Wednesday 7 February at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire
