One of the main principles of organic livestock farming is to maintain the highest possible animal health and welfare standards.  We have participated in a number of XLVets Skillnet programmes…

delivered by trainer Mark Drought, Avondale Veterinary. Mark has always been available to give advice on any animal health issues and assisted Cloragh Organic Farm in drawing up an animal health plan that has helped prevent disease on our farm and improve overall flock health.“

“The graduate mentorship programme is a fantastic opportunity to meet other young vets adjusting to the reality of veterinary life! The first veterinary job after college can be quite daunting and…

challenging. The programme provides a chance to gain valuable knowledge from vets that have been working in the profession for many years. It is directed in a pleasant and informal manner with hands on practical experience. The speakers involved make a huge effort to involve every participant throughout the course. The programme has been invaluable to me in gaining knowledge about many aspects of the veterinary profession. It has also given me the chance to meet people from the XLVet network throughout the country. I have enjoyed getting to know the participants also and I hope that we can stay in contact in the future.”
