Dairy cattle form an important component of any large animal veterinarian's case load as well as contributing significantly to the nation's economy.

Like all areas of veterinary practice, expertise in the dairy cattle sector is always changing and adapting as new scientific studies are undertaken.

The NZVA have created a selection of courses which will be of value to dairy cattle veterinarians at different stages of their career. You can select from one of the NZVA courses listed below to update, improve or extend your dairy cattle practice or check out our CPD calendar to view an extensive selection of CPD offered by other providers.
