Fighting the liver fluke challenge

6 October 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Fluke can cause serious financial impacts – whether through direct sheep losses or under-performance. It is the second highest cause of abattoir condemnations. Climate change and flukicide resistance are adding to the fluke challenge. This group discussion will bring together knowledge and expertise on the most effective prevention, monitoring/testing, control and treatment methods for liver fluke in sheep.

Join us on Zoom for talks from:
John Schofield & Guy Swindlehurst, Elanco – strategic fluke treatment – using the right product at the right time.

Rosie Lyle, Farm Animal Vet, Bishopton Veterinary Group – testing methods, protecting your flock from incoming infection, XL Vets Fluke Sentinel project.

Kate Gascoyne, The Farmer Network & Hill Sheep Health North project – feedback from the farmer groups who have undertaken testing and treatment monitoring on their own farms.

To register for the meeting, call The Farmer Network on (01768) 868615.
