Medicine Matters

If you are a Dairy Farmer, you will need to be Red Tractor assured in order to sell your milk to your milk buyer. If you are a beef and/or sheep farmer and are on the Red Tractor assurance scheme, from 1 November 2021, the following information will also apply to you.

It is now a Red Tractor requirement that that at least one person, who is responsible for administering medicines had undertaken training and holds a certificate of competence/attendance from training undertaken.


We cover this in our “Medicine Matters” Course which includes the following:

  • Medicine types
  • Medicine handling
  • Administration of medicine
  • Medicine storage
  • Recording requirements
  • Avoiding residues


This is a classroom-based course and lasts for 1.5 hours.
