Bovine Foundation Course

This course will teach you the method, to use yourself, that reduces impact pressure into the pelvis of the cow. Impacts into the pelvis happen on a regular basis and by keeping this pressure to an optimum, blood flow into the pelvis is correct.

The benefits of knowing this method may improve

* Quieter stock

* Tighter calving patterns due to increased blood supply into the uterus

* Reduced calving difficulties

* Less mastitis as blood flow fights infection

* An increase in milk production

These are half day courses, 10-2.30,  and are foundation level​. They highlight the uniqueness of the bovine  and the farming environment.
