Workshops to fight fluke

Quality Meat Scotland is inviting farmers and others involved in the industry to a “fighting fluke” workshop on October 10 at the Moredun Research Institute.

The workshop, which is free of charge and includes lunch, aims to look at the practical steps farmers can take to tackle the scourge of liver fluke, which is proving a huge frustration to livestock farmers up and down the country.

The event will include an update on the current fluke situation and the key factors on farms which increase the risk of fluke problems.

The various options for tackling fluke will be reviewed at the meeting along with a working example case study. The meeting will also include a visit to Moredun’s laboratories, where there will be an opportunity to view fluke and the damage they can cause.
