Webinar: Looking at the impact of liver fluke, surveillance, detection methods and treatment

Past Event - booking closed

Mon, 07 October 2019

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM


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.

Did you know? 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 lifecycle
  • Surveillance
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment options
  • Current SCOPS and COWS good practice advice

The webinar will last approximately 35 minutes, with time for questions at the end.
