Farming Online www.farming.co.uk are currently working with Liverpool University to develop a better Liver-Fluke forecasting service (updating the Ollerenshaw risk model).

Part of the Liver-fluke project involves consulting members of the farming industry to use their knowledge to help improve the liver-fluke model that we develop with the University.

Once complete, the liver-fluke model is a service where a user can feed in their location and feed out a liver-fluke forecast for their farm.

We are looking for farmers who would be willing to trial the model and provide feedback.

The aim is to help to decrease the chances of infection which costs the industry circa 300 million pa due to poor livestock performance and costs of treatment.

Would you be interested in getting involved? If so please email us at liver-fluketrial@farming.co.uk

with your contact number and we will get in touch to give you more information, after which we hope you will agree to being involved in this very exciting project!
