Farmers, vets, and the operational group meet online with Prof Diana Williams, Chair in Veterinary Parasitology, Department of Infection Biology and Microbiomes, Institute of Infection, Veterinary and Ecological Sciences, Liverpool University, 28th January 2021

 

Diana presented information on how the different tests work and what can be learned from them. The vets and farmers expressed what they had learned from coproantigen, faecal egg counts and blood testing and how they used the results to make treatment decisions. A key concern was how many naïve lambs to blood test in order to make decisions on treatments for a large flock, that is grazing in different locations.
