Don’t let lameness erode your profitability
A roadshow gets underway this month focusing on sheep lameness and how farmers can manage the conditions that lead to the problem developing in their flock.
Lameness can be hugely costly for a farm business as affected sheep are often in poor condition resulting in reduced fertility and mothering ability. It also affects the lamb growth even if the lamb itself is not lame.
The roadshow is being organised by Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) and will be held in August and September.
During the events farmers will be given practical demonstrations and advice on how to control lameness in their sheep and what treatments are available.
Dewi Hughes, HCC’s Project Executive, said “Lameness is one of the most costly diseases affecting sheep profitability, but it can be controlled and eradicated with correct management.
“This roadshow will offer farmers practical advice that they can take away with them and use in their flock health planning.”
