Webinar: Breeding worm-tolerant sheep

Date : 18th January 2023 | 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Can we breed resilient lambs that tackle worms naturally without impacting their growth rate? Find out more from the latest on-farm trial.

Farmers Matt and Pip Smith from Trefranck Farm, Cornwall, teamed up with Castle Vets, the Moredun Research Institute and CIEL to run a Defra-funded pilot study. The aim was to establish whether Trefranck Romney rams showed any variation in how they responded when exposed to gastrointestinal nematodes (worms) throughout the 2022 grazing season.

Join this webinar organised by Innovative Farmers to find out more about the project and it’s outcomes.
