This practical course in a market, arranged by Food and Farming Compliance Ltd., provides in a supervised and safe environment the opportunity for course members to learn the role and duties of an animal health and welfare inspector in a market and be given a basic understanding of what to look for and how to deal with it. There will be an opportunity to look at cattle, pigs, sheep and poultry exposed for sale, and to consider the legislation that applies to them while they are in a market and if this is being met. Course members will be asked to carry out inspections at the market and report back.
It is intended for those officers appointed to Local Authority departments who are responsible for administering and enforcing the provisions of Animal Health and Welfare legislation, in relation to livestock in a market. The course is also relevant to Animal Health and Welfare staff of Central Government Departments and Agencies, including Veterinary and Animal Health Officers who have little or no experience in market duties.
This is an “hands on “participative course and numbers are limited so early booking is recommended
