Flock Health Clubs are being established across the country by sheep vets. These vet-facilitated sheep farmer business groups offer many benefits:
There’s no need to run a Flock Health Club alone. There’s no need to spend hours preparing to run a flock health club meeting.
Our sheep vets at Flock Health Ltd are here to help!
Stay abreast of practice in flock health management and be equipped to run your Flock Health Club by subscribing to our free Newsletter and attending our CPD events that summarise the latest research on topical issues (e.g. antimicobrial usage) and share practical tips on how to run a cost-effective club.
Research back in 2013 identified sheep farmer opinions of the current role of vets in flock health management on sheep farms and stated the following in its outcomes - ‘After discussion there was agreement that small flocks could work together with a veterinarian and that they all could benefit financially.’
As a result of this research finding, the concept of Flock Health Clubs developed and a pilot started in two practices in the north of England in 2014. Following the success of the pilots, CPD and training developed for practitioners and Flock Health Clubs have been rolled out across the UK.
Meeting Resources are availabe as Pay as You Go basis or, in some cases, free of charge thanks to the ADHB Beef and Lamb.
