Sheep handling tips
EFFECTIVE sheep handling systems reduce labour, improve timeliness of treatments and cut stress on both sheep and shepherd.
That is why a new series of MAFF-funded meetings, arranged to discuss the principles of good sheep handling facilities, will be worth attending. Advice will be given on planning new facilities and improving existing ones, and also on the control of sheep scab.
The ADAS-run meetings will start next week. Dates and venues from ADAS on 01865-845137. *
