BCVA reveals Congress programme for 2022
"The last few years have been tumultuous for many, and I urge you to use these days at Congress as a way to rebalance and re-energise your approach to your career" - Dr Elizabeth Berry, BCVA president.
Programme promises sessions for every career stage.

The British Cattle Veterinary Association (BCVA) has announced the programme for BCVA Congress 2022.

Taking place in Birmingham from 20-22 October, the Congress welcomes talks from anyone within the farm veterinary profession, alongside key experts, in order to create a diverse programme.

Topics covered in the programme include wellbeing, TB, fertility, endemic diseases and sustainability, with many other topics of interest covered.

Suitable for farm vets at any career stage, the programme offers a specific stream for young vets, as well as sessions to extend species knowledge on sheep, goats and camelids.

Workshops with key speakers will be free to delegates, although spaces are limited, so the BCVA advises booking early upon registration to secure a place on these.

Dr Elizabeth Berry, BCVA president, encouraged farm vets to join in with BCVA Congress: “For me, BCVA Congress is where I’ve forged some of my most important relationships and made invaluable connections – it is as much about the people you meet as it is the CPD. 

“It is where we see ourselves included in a vital profession, full of extraordinary colleagues. So, it is with real pleasure that I look forward to welcoming you to the Hotel Metropole in Birmingham this year.”

Social events are also on the agenda, with a Peaky Blinders themed casino fundraiser for the charity Ripple Effect, and a Gala Dinner on Friday evening to raise money for veterinary support charity Vetlife. 

Anyone interested in attending can visit the BCVA website for further information.

Views sought on NOAH Compendium

Users of the National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) Compendium app and website are being asked to share their views on how it can be improved.

In a new survey, users are asked about some suggested future developments, such as notifications for new and updated datasheets, sharing links to datasheets, and enhanced search functionality.

It comes after NOAH ceased publication of the NOAH Compendium book as part of its sustainability and environmental commitments. The website and the app will now be the main routes to access datasheets and view any changes.
