An online survey has been launched to provide an ongoing weekly snapshot of lamb crop, and whether any health trends are emerging – particularly as a result of the schmallenberg virus (SBV).
Producers in England, Scotland and Wales are being urged to complete the survey as they finish lambing, to record key performance figures. They are asked to answer all questions to the best of their knowledge, even if they do not experience any problems.
The industry bodies that have joined forces for the study are Eblex, Hybu Cig Cymru (HCC)/ Meat Promotion Wales, National Beef Association (NBA), National Farmers Union (NFU), National Sheep Association (NSA), Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA).
Please find the time to complete the survey as it will provide excellent information that we will all benefit from.
