The Conference was a great experience, we have learnt a lot about Cowconfort. There was some discussion about trimming technique, conduced by researches from the UK. Participation was high, there were many short presentations about interesting topics, like relationship and communication between professionals and farmers, antibiotics remains, bandages, security at work,…

And of course…The Topic: Digital Dermatitis. There are different points of view from all over the world. It was really interesting, in Europe we are really worried about this infectious disease, with high prevalence in our stalls. In other places, like Chile, they know DD exists and they have some infected farms…but because they work in extensive systems it is not the biggest deal. Facilities in pathways and overwear are more important for Southamerican professionals.
