Remote CPD day and AGM – 6th November 2020

This year, the Veterinary Deer Society is planning on running a day’s CPD event focussing on deer. Due to the continuing difficulties of large gatherings, the intention of this CPD day is to be via Zoom, or another electronic media which will be confirmed closer to the time. An Annual General Meeting will also be conducted for members of the veterinary deer society and will take place after the main presentation. The VDS meeting  will occur on Friday the 6th November 2020, and the proposed topics and timings are as follows (subject to change):

11.00 Meeting opens – delegates log onto Zoom platform

11.15 Control of Wild Deer by Contraception – Giovanni Massei

12.00 Park deer and Tb – Peter Green

12.45 Lunch

13.15 New Zealand Deer Farming: Current Practices and Relevance to the UK Industry – Sam Ecroyd

14.00 Deer, ticks and vector borne diseases – Richard Birtles

14.45 AGM

This will account for 3 hours CPD, for which you will be entitled to a CPD certificate. In order to sign up to this day please use the following link. You will be sent full joining instructions for logging into the day closer to the time. The “earlybird” costings for this day are £50 for members and £65 for non members. After Monday the 14th September, these rates will increase to £60 for members and £75 for non-members. If you have any further queries around this online event, please do feel free to get in touch with us at “admin@vetdeersociety.com
