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 Liver Fluke forecasts, acute fluke disease in sheep, sheep worming, liver fluke in cattle and housing treatments in cattle.
As cows begin the housing season and a greater proportion of the diet comes from conserved forages, the risk of wire disease may increase. Cobalt deficiency in lambs may also become apparent at this time of year. In this month’s webinar, James Aitken of Orchard Vets talks about prevention and management of these two important conditions.
