Poor fertility is probably the most economically important animal health issue - the average loss in the UK is around £250 per cow, equivalent to approximately 3.5p/litre.

These losses have increased since the start of the century, as in most parts of the world, including the UK, cattle fertility has declined in recent years.

Parasite Forecast

NADIS publishes a monthly Parasite Forecast for farmers and livestock keepers, based on detailed Met Office data. The Parasite Forecast outlines the parasitic challenge facing cattle and sheep in the different UK regions. This month’s webinar focuses on liver fluke in sheep and cattle, worms  and winter treatments in cattle.

Disease Alert
Image: Sole Ulcer
Now dairy cows are all housed, there is an increased risk of developing sole ulcers. Abortions may also be seen in early lambing flocks, of which Toxoplasmosis is one of the most common causes. In this month’s webinar, James Aitken of Orchard Veterinary Group discusses these two important conditions, including the latest research in cattle claw horn disease.

If you would like to use any of the NADIS A-Z animal health material on the NADIS website www.nadis.org.uk please do so.
