Let's Talk Sheep - Nematodirus / Cocidia in Lambs8 April 2021 8 April 2021
Dr. Orla Keane from Teagasc will be talking about Nematodirus infection in young lambs. This is very timely as the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine have just issued their Nematodirus forecast which has indicated that peak hatching and infection will be about a week earlier this year due to higher soil temperature this spring. Orla will discuss the symptoms of the disease, what control products to use and how to reduce the risk of infection to lambs.
Mr. Michael Gottstein from Teagasc will talk about coccidiosis infection in young lambs. This is a condition which also occurs in the young lambs around the same time that we start to see issues with Nematodirus. Michael will discuss symptoms, control and hygiene measures.
