Free farmers’ meeting on cryptosporidiosis and Johne’s diesease control

Both Johne’s disease and cryptosporidiosis can have a major impact on the health and welfare of your cattle and can result in significant financial loss at farm level.

A free evening meeting, designed to help farmers and vets achieve more effective control of these diseases, will be held at the Urr Valley Country House Hotel in Castle Douglas on Monday 10 November.

At this meeting Sarah Thomson and Karen Stevenson from Moredun will outline what is known about these diseases, from biology to diagnosis. They will then go on to describe how both Johne’s disease and cryptosporidiosis can be controlled on the farm and measures farmers can take to protect their livestock from these infections.

This free livestock health meeting – which is also a registered AMTRA accredited (12 points) event for SQP’s - has been organised by Moredun, a world leader in research into the health and welfare of livestock and is part of a National Livestock Health Roadshow.

The meeting begins at 7.30pm, is open to all and no RSVP is required. For further information contact The Communications Team at Moredun on 0131 445 5111 or visit Moredun would like to thank Quality Meat Scotland, whose generous support has made this roadshow event possible.
