ROMS accredited mobility score training

The register of mobility scorers provides a means of quality assuring scorers who are supplying data for important herd decisions or to provide quality assurance to milk buyers. Scoring systems require interpretation and this course not only achieves greater consistency in scorers but provides a wealth of hints and tips to make delivering a scoring service more professional.

Why this course:

  1. >15 years of training experience in mobility scoring (since 2004)
  2. >12 years of score standardisation experience, including Healthy Feet Project (since 2006)
  3. International publications on the AHDB scoring method, and the score which led to the AHDB score (I still have the first draft of the MDC score)
  4. >11,000 cows scores a year analysed (19,710 in March this year)
  5. Real case examples
  6. Lots of practical insights from scoring on >150 different farms around the world

The course is fun and friendly, with lots of opportunity to discuss ideas (or not, if you are the more quietly reflective type). I use interactive voting handsets to allow anonymous scoring to be compared within a group which, from past experience, is the best way to coach consistency of scoring.

Next course Colliton Barton Training Centre, Nr Honiton, Devon 20th November 2019.
