NADIS has published the Parasite Forecast for 17 years. The Parasite Forecast is based on detailed Met Office data and describes the parasitic challenge facing UK livestock from both endo-parasites and ecto-parasites each month.
NADIS have launched a monthly webinar of the Parasite Forecast and Disease Alert as part of a monthly webinar journal for farmers - “Advanced Livestock Skills”. To view the webinars please click on the link below
Like the Parasite Forecast bulletin each webinar promotes disease control and prevention through veterinary health planning and emphasises the vet’s central role in improving animal health on farm. If you think your farmers would find the webinars useful and a good way of communicating better animal health through veterinary health planning, you can forward the link to your farm clients each month. NADIS will update the webinars each month
Advanced Livestock Skillsis being sent to all 600 livestock practices in the UK. Ideally it will be forwarded to farm clients, promoting veterinary health planning in disease control and encouraging dialogue between the farmer and his vet. The NFU and Levy bodies strongly support the initiative and will help in its distribution. Advanced Livestock Skills will complement existing newsletters.
