Oswestry, United Kingdom, November 17, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Jack Day, a stockman from the Walford Campus of North Shropshire College (NSC) recently attended and completed a Sheep Lameness Workshop run by the National Sheep Association (NSA) in Gloucester. The workshop, which was well attended, and is part of a series of Workshops and Events run by the NSA for its members, involved a series of clinics and presentations designed to help farmers recognise the signs of lameness. The workshop also focussed on the five point plan, a series of five points of action to tackle sheep lameness, a very serious problem that costs the industry millions of pounds each year, by focussing on areas such as vaccination, building resilience and developing immunity to disease.
Jack commented, “It was great to have the opportunity to attend the workshop to help further develop my skills. The talks and clinics that were on offer were extremely informative and are a great way to raise awareness about the dangers of sheep lameness and how to tackle it. I am also looking forward to being able to utilise the skills I have learnt at the workshop in my role at the College.”
