Informative lambing seminar
Around 80 farmers and others attended the East Coast Farm Vets seminar at Bushmere Estate last week on planning the lambing season.
The event offered a range of simple solutions around pre-lamb planning, drenching, parasite resistance, FEC reduction and refugia.
“We were rapt with how well attended it was,” said Andrew Cribb from East Coast Farm Vets.
The guest speaker and MC for the Challenge the Status Quo seminar was Jamie Fitzgerald, who has a background in sheep, beef and deer, owned his own farm fencing business and has been a rural banker.
He made a colourful and entertaining contribution to the afternoon.
“Overall it was a very worthwhile event,” Mr Cribb said.
