Farmers lose money every single day as a result of disease and other conditions. Our latest #HelpfulFOLK webinar is for livestock farmers interested to know how Animal Health & Welfare can positively impact their bottom line.
About the Animal Health and Welfare Pathway:
The Animal Health and Welfare Pathway aims to help livestock farmers bolster the health and welfare of their stock, while at the same time improving their bottom line. Defra sees animal welfare as a “public good” and livestock farmers who can demonstrate welfare enhancements will be paid public funds under the government’s post-Brexit plans for agriculture. The programme is set to start in Spring 2022 with a vet visit, paid for by the government, with Animal Health and Welfare grants to be launched later in the year.
Why join our webinar:
The initial focus of the Animal Health and Welfare Pathway will be on improving disease prevention while using fewer antibiotics to reduce antimicrobial resistance. Our #HelpfulFOLK webinar aims to provide livestock farmers with some food for thought on what this means for them and what needs to be done differently.
