HLN invites you to join us for a workshop on hoof health and lameness in sheep on Tuesday 23rd August.
Sheep farmers are reminded to monitor their sheep for lameness through winter and spring. Lameness reduces profitability in affected flock through reduced weight gain and ill thrift, poor joining, treatment costs, reduced sale prices and, in cases during lambing, death due to recumbency and lambing sickness. With such a wet winter, foot problems have been common.
The workshop will feature presentations from Progressor Richard Whittington and Dr Om Dhungyel from Sydney University, who will discuss the latest research into diagnosis and vaccination. Murray Local Land Services District Vets, Scott Ison and Mark Corrigan and Senior Biosecurity Officer, Neal Whitsed, will discuss on field demonstration.
Venue: “Jindalee”, Henty-Cookardinia Rd
Date: Tuesday 23rd August
Time: 9am – 2pm
Morning tea and lunch included.
Please RSVP for catering purposes to the HLN office on (02) 6036 3181.
All welcome to attend.
This workshop is supported by funding from Murray Local Land Services through the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
