The Best Advice
Ensure you are ready for action against blowfly strike. The disease is potentially at its worst from June until September-October.
Blowfly Strike poses a serious welfare challenge to animals and can significantly affect farm profitability. More than 80 per cent of sheep flocks are hit by blowfly strike every year.
Figures from AHDB show the total cost to the sheep industry is £2.2 million a year. As well as animal deaths there are losses from damaged wool and fleeces, plus the cost of treatment and strike control.
