Sedbergh: SFI and liver fluke management in the uplands

Past Event - booking closed

Thursday, 04 July 2024

6:30pm - 9:00pm

Lockbank Farm, Sedbergh, Cumbria

LA10 5HE

Learn about the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) stacking options in an upland environment and how you can build a resilient farming business with the Upland Farmer Toolkit.
We will also share the latest information on anthelmintics and the control and management of liver fluke.

SFI stacking

A practical demonstration of the Upland Farmer Toolkit will show you how to effectively and easily apply for SFI funding and, where appropriate, use ‘stacking’ to capitalise on the offering. You will have an opportunity to test the toolkit yourself and find out how SFI stacking could apply to your farm.

Liver fluke

Elanco’s Matthew Colston, a ruminant technical consultant, will be sharing the latest information on controlling liver fluke, worms and anthelmintic resistance. We will also go on a farm walk to uncover the favoured habitat of the intermediate host – the mud snail.

If you are an upland farmer challenged by overcoming the loss of basic payment and/or production losses posed by liver fluke, this event is for you.

Please arrive by 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start.

This event is brought to you by AHDB, Pasture for Life (PFL)Farming in Protected Landscapes programme (FiPL) and Elanco; it is being hosted by farmer Roger Sedgwick.
