Liver Fluke Control Group

This group is formed of eight sheep farmers and two veterinary practitioners from Dumfries and Galloway. Over the last five years, the practicioners noticed that their farm clients have been experiencing increasing difficulties with liver fluke control, so they joined forces with some of the local farmers to investigate an effective and sustainable way of controling liver fluke disease.
