Bimeda launches online Nutrition Academy

In 2021, the focus will be on the important role of trace element nutrition in the health, fertility and productivity of ruminants

Bimeda UK is pleased to announce the launch of its online Nutrition Academy, which in 2021 will focus on the important role of trace element nutrition in the health, fertility and productivity of ruminants.

The Nutrition Academy launch follows on from Bimeda’s highly successful Sheep Scab Academy, which saw 250 veterinarians, SQPs and other animal health professionals complete accredited modules related to best practice for sheep scab prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

The academy will consist of three modules which will be launched during 2021. Those who successfully complete all three modules will receive certification from Bimeda, as well as some exclusive branded goodies.

The first module in the trio is titled Bimeda Trace Elements in Dairy Cow Fertility and Pregnancy and is available now on Bimeda’s e-learning portal. This module also accounts for 1 hour 15 minutes of CPD and veterinarians will be able to download a certificate following on from completion of the module. The module has also been accredited with 9 AMTRA points.

In the coming months Bimeda will add a second module focused on the role of trace element nutrition in lamb and calf growth and thrive, and a final module focused on the role of trace elements in sheep fertility and pregnancy.

Bimeda UK General Manager Mark Cokayne commented, “trace elements play a critical role in the health and fertility of ruminants, yet historically this area has been somewhat overlooked in formal animal health education.

“Our customers tell us that they would like a deeper understanding of areas such as trace element deficiencies, toxicities and interactions, and the impact of these on ruminant health and fertility. We are pleased to respond to this market demand with our new academy, which will provide veterinarians and SQPs with additional knowledge to help inform their conversations with farmers.”

Bimeda has long been known for its dedication to the promotion of best practice when it comes to trace element nutrition, and supports initiatives such as forage analysis, customer and farmer training events and the sponsorship of the National SQP Award for Nutritional Expertise.

For any veterinary surgeons, SQPs, veterinary nurses or industry professionals who would like to sign up to either Bimeda’s online Nutrition Academy or the Sheep Scab Academy, visit thewebsite today.
