Sheep Health Workshop

Back due to popular demand, WAFarmers will host another Sheep Health Workshop following resounding success at workshops held earlier this year.

The free workshop, aimed at increasing farmers’ awareness of sheep health issues and providing disease prevention and identification information, will see guest speakers from the Department of Agriculture and Food WA and Zoetis, as well as private veterinarians and producers.

The initiative will help producers to detect endemic livestock diseases earlier, thus reducing the potential for biosecurity issues in Western Australia. Further, farmers will gain an understanding about a number of key sheep diseases which can cause considerable problems for businesses, participate in a practical demonstration on how diseases impact the production of an animal, and learn about subsidies available to help support disease investigations.

RSVP to WAFarmers Livestock Executive Officer Kim Haywood by Thursday 25 August by emailing kimhaywood@wafarmers.org.au or calling (08) 9486 2100.
