Webinar: Reducing lameness in the sheep flock
October 29, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join AHDB Beef & Lamb and Fiona Lovatt from Flock Health Ltd for a webinar on reducing lameness in the sheep flock.
Lameness is a huge issue for the sheep industry and one that needs to be taken seriously. It results in economic costs on farm because of loss of body condition, reduced milk and poorer growth rates, as well as significant welfare implications from the chronic pain experienced by lame sheep. If poorly controlled then costs can increase further, not least because of the high use of antibiotics.
The webinar will cover:
- Common causes of lameness and the risk factors
- Practical strategies to reduce lameness levels on farm in the short term
- A SMART plan to prevent lameness and protect the flock for the long term
