28th March 2023

The clock's have changed and things are feeling more springlike. But can the tradition signs of spring help farmers identify risks to their livestock? That is a study being conducted by Queen's University Belfast.

Dr Eric Morgan says: "We know lots of sheep farmers are visiting the SCOPS website at this time of year, to use the SCOPS Nematodirus Forecast. But nematodirus is not the only thing coming to life this time of year. Please help us identify which signs of spring match up with the risk period in your area, by answering this Queen's University Belfast really simple, three-minute anonymous survey. Thank you."
