Join AHDB, HCC and QMS for a brand new CPD course focused on developing a structured approach to improving neonatal survival on beef and sheep farms. The latest research, led by the University of Edinburgh, has shown that beef and sheep farmers are highly motivated to improve neonatal outcomes, however they often attribute external factors as limiting their ability to make changes to their practice. Alongside the multifactorial nature of neonatal mortality, efforts to improve neonatal survival must be tailored to the farm’s specific circumstance.
