Cattle Handling Clinics at First English Winter Fair

04 November 2008

UK - Cattle handling clinics by international expert, Miriam Parker will be one of the many new attractions for livestock farmers visiting the first English Winter Fair at Stafford next month (15-16 November).

According to the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX), livestock farmers will have opportunities for one to one discussions with Miriam about practical handling issues on their farms throughout the show.

Four specialist companies are providing cattle crushes, weighbridges, races and other handling equipment to show just what is needed for safe and efficient cattle handling on the farm.

The clinics are part of the Defra funded EBLEX Better Returns West Midlands programme. Dr Phil Hadley, EBLEX Regional Manager says: 'With more and more livestock farms run with just family labour, and the increasing need to handle cattle for routine health checks, good facilities are more important than ever."
