The Torch Lamb Benchmarking Group will meet again on Tuesday 24th March.

At our first meeting we had a talk on coccidiosis control in lambs from Elanco Animal Health. This was followed by pizza (anchovies or no anchovies?) and a round table discussion on what we wanted to get out of a benchmarking group. We plan to meet regularly throughout the year, for informative talks, pizza and sharing of best practices. Our speaker this time is David Pett from AHDB who will tell us all about FarmBench, which is an easy to use online benchmarking tool that helps to identify where strengths and weaknesses lie within a farm business.
We have established an outline of a small trial on recording lamb performance and looking at whether trace element supplementation in young lambs gives a cost-effective boost to performance.
If you missed the first meeting, you are most welcome to join us at our second. Please email jocarr@torchvets.com or call us on 01769 610000 to let us know if you will be attending.
