Ten trainings on Animal IRT in the framework of the BTSF initiative of the European Commission completed
Better Training for Safer Food" (BTSF) is a initiative of the EU Commission aimed at organising a Community (EU) training strategy in the areas of food law, feed law, animal health and animal welfare rules, as well as plant health rules. In December 2013 ADT Projekt GmbH and its partner, the French Livestock Institute (Institut de l’Elevage) has been awarded by the Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA) to implement ten one-week training courses for a total of 280 participants from Competent Authorities and other mandated bodies carrying out inspection on animal identification, registration and traceability (Animal IRT) and/or being involved in the design, management and operation of Animal IRT systems. For the purpose of this training ADT assembled an interdisciplinary team of tutors from 5 different European countries.
The ten workshops took place in four alternating locations (Munich, Lyon, Warsaw and Lisbon). Between 25 and 30 delegates from all European Member States and neighboring countries attended each training event. The training content comprises theoretical briefings, cases studies and practical group work and is completed by a one-day field trip giving the participants an insight in the practical implementation of EU requirements on Animal identification.
The last out of ten workshops took place in Munich from 19th to 23rd October 2015. The field day for 27 delegates was organized in the region of Ostallgäu with the support of Allgäuer Herdebuchgesellschaft (AHG) and the involvement of other relevant stakeholders (The Bavarian milk recording association LKV, the Bavarian meat control association FPR, local slaughterhouse, farmers). Representatives of the competent regional Veterinary Office were present to answer questions on the inspection of Animal IRT.

In June 2015 ADT Projekt organized a practical training on udder health and milk quality in the provinces of Xinjiang and Hebei in China within the German-Sino Animal Breeding Project, which is funded by German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and German agribusiness partners.
Both trainings included a seminar, where basic knowledge was taught and discussed, as well as a practical part in the milking parlor of the two participating demonstration farms. In total some 75 participants could be trained in both two-day-trainings and got their certificate.
German and Chinese experts were involved in the training. From Germany Dr. Martin Spohr, from udder health unit of veterinary service of Stuttgart, and Mr. Renke Garrelts, from milk testing laboratory Weser Ems conducted the seminar together with Chinese experts from the Chinese Agricultural University (CAU). Various topics were covered during the seminar such as feeding, husbandry and herd management and their influence on udder health, work routines during milking, milk recording, milk testing, udder diseases, their diagnosis, prevention and treatment.
In the milking parlor participants analyzed and evaluated the work flow during milking, animal behavior, animal cleanliness and teat condition with the aid of the experts and prepared check lists. The use of a lactocorder and California-Mastitis Test (CMT) were presented exemplarily and the results were analyzed within the group.
Once again ADT Projekt would like to thank the German and Chinese speakers and trainers for their dedicated presentations and all participants for their engaged collaboration.
