Questions can be submitted to the BSAVA.
Authors to discuss key findings of their papers. 

Members of the profession are being given the chance to submit questions for a new series of webinars based on current JSAP papers.

New hardship fund for dairy farmers in England

The UK government has announced a 10,000 hardship fund for dairy farmers in England to ensure continued operation and sustained productivity during the COVID-19 pandemic. It comes after dairy farmers saw a huge decrease in demand for their products with the closure of cafes, bars and restaurants.

Eligible dairy farmers will be entitled to 10,000 each to cover 70 per cent of lost earnings during April and May. It aims to ensure farmers can sustain production and continue to operate without impacting animal welfare.
