Sustainable Control of Parasites in Sheep

The programme to develop a strategy for sustainable control of parasites in sheep (SCOPS) is directed by a steering committee chaired by the National Sheep Association and includes representatives from SNFU, NOAH, AHDA, RUMA, CSL/VLA, Sheep Veterinary Society, DEFRA and Scottish Agricultural College. The group has been formed to develop these strategies and to oversee the delivery of recommendations to the industry.

A technical manual for veterinary surgeons and advisers is available on the SCOPS web site -
