We will look at the importance of management both pre and post tupping, including a practical session on body condition scoring and nutrition.
We will discuss how liver fluke has the potential to impact on sheep health and welfare and look at what, when & how to best manage this parasite.
Finally we will have a look at other markets for hill lamb opposed to selling lambs as store.
