Karen Wonnacott, Crediton Milling Company Karen Wonnacott:
“Sotirios visited us at Crediton Mill and facilitated a highly informative and interactive RoMS Mobility Scorers Training Session. We went onto farm in the afternoon to put into practice all that we had learnt in the classroom environment. The day involved plenty of interactive discussion and debate and Sotirios ensured that we stayed on topic and achieved all that we needed to in the time available. Sotirios answered all of our questions professionally and honestly and I feel that we all learnt a number of things that we can put into practice on farm immediately. Many thanks for an interesting and practical course!”

Terry Burdon, Dairy Farm Services South West Ltd, Uffculme, Devon Terry Burdon, Dairy Farm Services South West Ltd:
“I attended the RoMS Mobility Scorers Course at Bicton College with Instructor Dr Sotirios Karvountzis from Mendip Vets. I found the information and insight I gained as a result of participating on this course very beneficial. I was able to further my knowledge and understanding of diseases, bio security and the welfare of bovine animals and now know as a result of this course I can confidently mobility score a cow correctly. Sotirios is an excellent trainer who was able to answer all questions. He is a very approachable, knowledgeable professional who presented an interesting interactive course. Excellent, a must for anyone who is interested in mobility scoring.”
