Sheep farmers collect a lot of data about flock performance and could make far better use of it to improve health, welfare and productivity.
According to Nigel Miller, chair of the new Ruminant Health & Welfare (RH&W) group, producers naturally collate information about their flock – and analysing that information in conjunction with their vet or adviser will help to focus on key areas to improve.
RH&W is surveying farmers to identify the key health and welfare challenges affecting the industry. To take part and potentially win a farmhouse hamper worth £50* please visit https://ruminanthw.org.uk/
