Sheep health conference

The Sheep Health and Welfare Group (SHWG) has announced it will hold a conference in November.

On 21 November industry representatives will attend a one-day conference at the Sixways Stadium in Worcester to discuss the health of the Great Britain’s sheep flock.

Experts, researchers, industry advisers and farmers will be brought together to discuss the latest cutting-edge technology for disease control and to explore the range of available disease control strategies and the practical application of these.

Topics will include the early detection of disease as well as the design and implementation of prevention strategies.

Attendees will also discuss the Schmallenberg Virus (SBV), internal parasites and the science behind flock health and welfare.
