Worming your way to profit

Sheep in field with hills in background and text: worming your way to profit
Friday 7 July 2017 - 10:30 to 14:30

Kirkton and Auchtertyre

Soil Association Scotland

A practical workshop on a hill farm looking at effective ways of treating fluke and worms. It will cover diagnosis, control, different treatments, and pasture management. 

Can you change things to improve health and productivity, and maybe even save a bit of cash? Practical demonstrations will show the principles in action – with handling, weighing, and faecal egg counts. 

There will also be a look at how wader scrapes affect fluke management, and you’ll get a chance to have your questions answered by our expert speakers Harriet Wishart, Jenna Kyle, John Holland and Davy McCracken from SRUC, and Philip Skuce and Fiona Kenyon from the Moredun, at lunchtime.

Free of charge to farmers, foresters and land managers and £40 + VAT to others.

Book online, call Jane on 0131 666 2474, or email jdingwall@soilassociation.org.

Funding is provided through The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development in partnership with the Scottish Government, Scottish Water, and RSPB Scotland.
