Get your free ticket now! – Pasture management for better worm control in cattle

Date: 7th July at 7.30pm



Do you know that up to 80% of the worm population on your farm is on the pasture?

Join this virtual webinar to take part in a discussion to help you learn and understand the role that pasture contamination plays in parasite control. Find out how you can practically implement an integrated control strategy which can reduce reliance on wormers and minimise selection for resistance. In this webinar, vet and 2021 Nuffield scholar Rob Howe will describe his approach and lead a discussion on this topic.

Get your free ticket now! – Autumn Fluke Control: best practice in an evolving landscape

Date: 22nd September at 7.30pm


The threat that liver fluke poses to the health and productivity of cattle is increasingly well characterised. However, managing this risk relies on a clear understanding of the threat posed by this parasite at farm level.

In this webinar we’re joined by Professor Diana Williams, a veterinary parasitologist with interests in the immunology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of parasites affecting livestock. Currently Diana heads a large research programme which aims to improve control of Fasciola hepatica (fluke) in sheep and cattle.

We will discuss:
  • How we can better characterise the risk at farm level
  • The emerging challenges that complicate this picture
  • How we can use a risk based approach to control liver fluke at housing
