Moredun Sheep and Cattle Health and Welfare Day

Tuesday 8 January 2019

Please note: This course will attract 28 AMTRA CPD points.

Many of the vaccines, diagnostic tests and disease control strategies that are used on livestock farms today have been developed at Moredun, which is at the forefront of livestock disease prevention and control.  

Moredun have produced some brilliant animations to explain key features of some of our most problematic endemic diseases (e.g. sheep scab, roundworms and liver fluke) and these will be shown throughout the day alongside individual presentations and practical demonstrations. Please join us to gain a greater understanding of disease prevention and control in cattle and sheep, and the work of the Moredun.
