Fighting Fluke in Sheep and Cattle

Join AHDB Beef and Lamb, Lesley Stubbings, independent sheep consultant and Philip Skuce, Principal Scientist at Moredun, for a webinar on liver fluke surveillance and control.

On-farm costs of liver fluke are estimated to be £87 for each case in cattle and £5.56 for each case in sheep. Milder winters and wet summers have created an ideal environment for fluke to thrive and this is now a nationwide issue, with more farms reporting their first cases.

The webinar will cover:

  • Liver fluke life cycle
  • Surveillance
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment options
  • Current SCOPS and COWS good practice advice
