Producer feedback on the potential causes of Liver-fluke wanted

We are interested in producer feedback on the potential causes of Liver-fluke.

As part of a major project to update the Ollerenshaw method of Liver Fluke detection Farming Online and the University of Liverpool are exploring reasons as to why liver fluke occurs as part of our research. 

The liver-fluke project involves analysis data sources such as weather/soil/satellite as potential relationships/causes/facilitators of the parasite. Quite often, producers have experiences and anecdotal evidence that perhaps has not been previously studied in detail.  Eg, an area that we are looking into is the association between ground water springs & fluke.  

If you have any such suggestions or supporting experiences, please forward those and we will keep you up to date with progress. 

Can you help us ? If so please reply to liver-fluketrial@farming.co.uk
