Weather-Smart Worm Control - Wednesday 8th September 7pm BST
This webinar will discuss how climate and weather affect parasite transmission and generate the typical infection patterns observed on farms in Europe. Further, how climate change and increasing variation in weather patterns lead to challenges for parasite control on farms. Finally, how advisors can help farmers to navigate this changing situation, especially as the effectiveness of synthetic anthelmintics diminishes and new but complex options for parasite control emerge.
About the speaker:
Eric Morgan is Professor in Veterinary Parasitology at Queen’s University Belfast, and Diplomate of the European Veterinary Parasitology College (DipEVPC). His research interests centre on the epidemiology of animal diseases under climate change, especially helminths in grazing ruminants, and consequences for their management. This includes the use of experiments, computer models and field trials to develop efficient and sustainable approaches to control under increasing anthelmintic resistance. He supports the development and dissemination of best practice in parasite control through industry and government bodies, including COWS and SCOPS in the UK, EU COST Action COMBAR, and the Star-IDAZ international research consortium on animal health.
