Vets and scientists from the Moredun Research Institute will begin a 10-date livestock health roadshow later this month.
According to the institute, the events will highlight livestock health issues, and it is hoped they will provide farmers, vets and suitability qualified persons (SQPs) with information to maximise the health, productivity and profitability of Britain’s livestock.
Subjects to be covered include:
- worm control
- liver fluke
- sheep abortion
- Johne’s disease
- rumen fluke
- sheep scab
- ovine pulmonary adenocarcinoma
Chief executive and scientific director of Moredun Julie Fitzpatrick said: “These subjects have been suggested by our board of regional advisors, most of whom are farmers, vets and SQPs – allowing us to remain focused on the industry’s needs.
“We hope these meetings will help farmers learn more about specific animal health problems, enabling them to make informed choices about disease control on their farms.”
Free to attend
The roadshow runs between 20 October and 9 November and will visit Perth, Kirkwall, Westray, Peebles, Newmarket, Macclesfield, Launceston, Llandovery, Skipton and Dumfries.
Meetings are free to attend and all are welcome. No RSVP is required apart from the on-farm event in Perth by 14 October to firstname.lastname@example.org
All events will start at 7:30pm, except the on farm event at Perth, which starts at 10am, and the Kirkwall meeting, which starts at 8pm.
