Sheep Veterinary Society
We aim to promote the prevention of disease and the welfare of sheep by providing a forum for discussion, distribution of research results and provision of advice on veterinary matters relating to sheep.
Sustained wet weather has put ewes under pressure this winter, meaning loss of body condition score (BCS) will be a valuable guide when deciding which ewes to worm around lambing.
That is the message from experts within the Sustainable Control of Parasites in Sheep (SCOPS) group, which is continuing to urge producers to move away from blanket worming of ewes and towards a more targeted approach.
The Northern Ireland Branch of the British Veterinary Association (BVA) and the North of Ireland Veterinary Association have jointly elected Dr. Sharon Verner as their new President.
