New podcast on Sheep scab ‘top of the agenda’ from OnFarm

Listen to our latest On Farm podcast with Monty talking about Sheep scab.

There has never been more sheep scab in Scotland than there is at the moment, according to advisors at the Moredun animal health research institute. Monty visits one farm struck by its first ever scab outbreak, and hears about the welfare, economic and mental anguish of dealing with the aftermath.

There is also expert advice from the Moredun’s Dr Stewart Burgess and Scott Brown, Regional Chair for the South of Scotland.

This episode is sponsored by Gold Fleece sheep dip. It’s recommended as a response to sheep scab but must be used responsibly, in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, and with all pertinent legislation.
