AgriSearch will be hosting a technical seminar on Tuesday 11th September 2018 at 10.00am at AFBI, Hillsborough which will be led by independent sheep consultant Lesley Stubbings and will focus on SCOPS recommendations on the use of the group 4/5 anthelmintics, and worm and liver fluke control. There will also be an open session where attendees are welcome to submit questions / topics prior to the seminar that Lesley will try to cover on the day.

The Sustainable Control of Parasites in Sheep (SCOPS) is an industry-led group that recognises one of the biggest challenges to the future health and profitability of the UK sheep industry is resistance to the animal health products used to control parasites. It offers sustainable control strategies to help farmers, vets and health advisors work together to tackle both internal and external parasites. From stomach worms to liver fluke, blowflies to sheep scab.
