Demo day at Riverview farm St Mellion Saltash with Calweton
Thursday 30th July 2015
On Thursday 30th July Agrimin were invited by Calweton vets
to attend farm demo day at Riverview Farm, St Mellion, Saltash, Cornwall.
Attending were Ben Millar, Agrimin’s South West Sales Manager and Ieuan Davies
Wales Sales Manager. The day was focused around the factors influencing flock
fertility and ensuring your sheep are in top condition for tupping. The morning
consisted of two presentations, firstly from Calweton vets who discussed
factors affect flock fertility and importance of condition scoring your ewes.
The second presentation was from Agrimin who discussed the importance of trace
elements in your breeding flock and how targeted bolusing can improve your
flock’s performance. These presentations prompted a series of quality questions
from a very responsive group of farmers.
The afternoon began after a pasty lunch with a ‘best
practise bolusing demonstration’ on eighty breeding ewes and four tups. It was
great to see a series of farmers both Male and Female getting involved and
trying bolusing for the first time. It was pleasing to hear that everyone found
bolusing a very simple process to carry out and very practical way to insure
that those animals trace element requirements were meet. The day was brought to
a close by Bryony from Calweton vets who went through the importance of Ram
MOT’s and demonstrated how to carry out such tup checks.
Agrimin wish to thank Tom for kindly hosting the
event and also to Bryony and Calweton vets for the chance to meet their valued
