Liver fluke control in sheep and cattle

Tuesday 21st July 8-9pm

Being presented by Philip Skuce

Philip intends to give an overview of liver fluke in sheep and cattle, with a focus on the latter. The presentation will cover the current state of play with regards to prevalence, fluke risk assessment, diagnostic testing, drug treatment options and alternative control strategies. He will also touch on rumen fluke, as that seems to be an increasing concern to cattle farmers.

This is a FREE webinar for BCVA members and will be broadcast on TUESDAY 21st July from 8-9pm and will be presented by Philip Skuce

Philip is a Principal Scientist at Moredun Research Institute, and has worked there for ~25 years on various aspects of sustainable control of helminth parasites (worms & fluke) in livestock. His research interests are in parasite diagnostics, detection in the environment, vaccination studies and the detection and management of anthelmintic resistance. He also has interests in the impact of climate change on helminth parasite epidemiology and the impact of endemic disease on the carbon footprint of livestock production. Philip is also the SEFARI (Scottish Environment, Food and Agriculture Research Institutes) Knowledge Exchange Sector Lead for Livestock.
