In this practical webinar, there will be a panel of vets and leading sheep farmers. We will discuss with the farmers exactly what they most value in their relationship with their vet & how they feel vets could most improve the service they offer. 
 
We will focus on optimum lamb growth and key influencing factors, including grassland management and parasites & how sheep vets are best able to interact with their sheep farmers on these topics with discussions between Lesley Stubbings, Liz Genever & Fiona Lovatt. 
 
Vets are very good at advising on health & disease but often less comfortable talking about individual flock economics. In this webinar Kate Phillips will cover practical flock accounting & share insights learnt from undertaking cost-of-production calculations for hundreds of flocks. 
 
A wealth of data can be collected on sheep farms via flock software but the data is not always used to its full potential or readily available to the vets. We will explore the veterinary possibilities whilst looking at different sources of flock data. 
 
 

We are running some FREE webinars for sheep vets over the summer and we felt like allowing participants or contributors to donate to either Send a Cow or Vetlife.

With many thanks to all our partners in these industry events.
