Welsh Farmers Encouraged to Complete Sheep Scab Survey

01 April 2016

WALES, UK - Welsh farmers have been urged by the Farmers' Union of Wales to take part in a sheep scab survey, to ensure it gives a complete representation of the disease.

The Welsh Government commissioned Bristol University to undertake a sheep scab survey in conjunction with Hybu Cig Cymru (Meat Promotion Wales - HCC), the National Sheep Association (NSA) and Welsh Lamb and Beef Producers (WLBP).

The aim of the survey is to determine the incidence of sheep scab in Wales in order to inform future eradication programmes.
