Oban Business Discussion Group: Veterinary Update – Beef & Sheep (Isle of Islay)


SAC Consulting vet Heather Stevenson along with Islay Vets will give an update on current disease risks, their prevention and treatments for beef cattle and hill sheep. This will include:

  • Looking at improving calf viability through reducing pneumonia risk,
  • An update on where we are with BVD.
  • We will also discuss causes of thin ewes and what might be done to help this.

In preparation for lamb we will include what can be done to prevent lamb joint-ll. Ticks and fluke are a perennial problem so there will be a reminder on control measures.
