New veterinary home-learning course on sustainable farming
Vet Sustain and VetSalus have teamed up to offer an online learning course called ‘A veterinary approach to sustainable food and farming’.
The 10-module programme can be completed at home in around four and six months and anyone who does so will earn a LANTRA-accredited certification on completion.
- The sustainable practitioner
- Farming systems of the world
- Efficient farming
- Agro-ecology, organic and regenerative agriculture

Tom Warboys, vet at Synergy Farm Health, who has reviewed the course, said: “This course provides a fascinating, in-depth exploration of sustainable food production and the role practitioners hold in shaping our farming practices, both current and future.
“I found it challenging, enlightening and, above all, motivating. It enables us as farm advisors to guide clients through the many changing expectations (and opportunities) within agriculture.”
Lewis Griffiths, chair of VetSalus, said: “This new course, produced by Vet Sustain and VetSalus, provides valuable information that will greatly enhance the ability of vets to provide leadership and support their clients on their ongoing journey to improve sustainability, and become evermore regenerative within their farming operations.”
