New booklet on sustainable parasite control
The booklet explores the control of liver fluke, roundworm and sheep scab.
Resource will help farmers make informed decisions about parasite control.

The Moredun Foundation has announced the publication of a new booklet for sheep and cattle farmers on sustainable parasite control.

The free, downloadable guide explores the control of three major parasites: liver fluke, roundworm and sheep scab, focusing on their sheep and cattle hosts. It also explains how these can be easily incorporated into livestock systems.

Lee Innes, director of communications at Moredun said: “We have a major research programme at Moredun to develop sustainable methods to prevent and control parasitic diseases in livestock and a vital element of that involves testing and monitoring to enable farmers to make informed decisions about parasite control.

“We have summarised the information in this special edition and we hope it will be helpful and useful to livestock farmers”.
