Congratulations to Dr Lynsey Melville and Eilidh Geddes, of the Moredun Research Institute, were awarded a Commendation for their FEC Check at the RHASS 2023 Technical Innovation Awards.
Sustainable control of roundworms is a challenge for the sheep industry, particularly with advancing drug resistance and climate change, and targeted application of effective drugs at optimal times is critical for continued production efficiency. This is achieved using faecal egg count (FEC) testing.
FEC Check assists farmers and those who don’t have access to advisors, on how to interpret complex FEC results and its use improves the sustainability of roundworm control, and reducing inappropriate chemical usage.
There have been two Gold, four Silver and three Certificates of Commendations awarded in the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS) 2023 round of winners in its influential Technical Innovation Awards.
