Herefordshire Demo a great start to Agrimin 24·7 Smartrace campaign
Agrimin and RM Jones held a very successful bolusing demonstration evening at New Barns Farm, Eaton Bishop, kindly hosted by Mr and Mrs T Stokes. A healthy attendance of some 60 farmers were given an opportunity to try their hand at bolusing sheep following a demonstration from Agrimin's Welsh Sales Manager Mr Ieuan Davies.
The impressive New Barns unit consists of a 450 ewe sheep enterprise and 80 beef sucklers with a predigree Limousin programme. The Stokes family have been using Agrimin boluses in their sheep and cattle for 3 seasons and find the products are vital components of their flock and herd health plans.
Agrimin are planning a series of similar events throughout the UK to help transfer knowledge to forward thinking livestock farmers. If you are interested in attending a demonstration event in your area, please complete the on-line registration form by clicking here. If you attend an event, you will automatically be entered into a draw to win a Ritchie Combi clamp worth over £2000.
Also in attendance at the New Barns Farm event were Ritchie, demonstrating their Combi Clamp, Norbrook, demonstrating pour-on worming and a presentation from Ffion Hemmings of KN Consulting on faecal egg counting.
Our thanks to the Stokes family and staff for providing a first class demonstration site and to Sharon of RM Jones for ensuring such an excellent turn-out
