Disease Alert

There is now much pressure from many areas to reduce antibiotic usage and selective dry cow therapy is a great way to make a big impact. Also at this time of year, we may start to see cases of acute fluke infection in sheep. In this month’s webinar James Aitken of Orchard Veterinary Group discusses these two important topics.

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 worms in lambs and rams, fly control in sheep and lungworm and worms in cattle.
