First Nematodirus Case Confirmed

The first case of Nematodirosis causing deaths and scouring in lambs has been confirmed in the Hereford area this week. The lambs were about 4 weeks of age and grazing high risk pasture with south facing slopes.

SCOPS urges sheep farmers to watch the forecast for their nearest weather station regularly and assess the risk to groups of lambs. 'This season we expect to see huge variation in timing across the country due to the unusual weather patterns' says Lesley Stubbings 'This is not the year to rely on routine timing for treatments' she adds.
