Disease Alert

Lambs from early lambing flocks will be several weeks old now, so as maternal antibodies wear off, it’s time to think about vaccinating lambs for clostridial disease. BVD is an ever-present risk to some farms and eradication schemes are now even being required by some milk buyers. In this month’s webinar, James Aitken of Orchard Veterinary Group discusses control and prevention of these two important conditions.

Parasite Forecast

NADIS publishes a monthly Parasite Forecast for farmers and livestock keepers, based on detailed Met Office data. The Parasite Forecast outlines the parasitic challenge facing cattle and sheep in the different UK regions. This month’s webinar focuses on Nematodirus risk for lambs and Chronic Liver Fluke in cattle and sheep.
