What Can Disease Tell Us In Regenerative Farming Systems?

Breakout Tent

Disease. Viruses, bacteria, parasites. Often considered a normal part of a functioning ecosystem. But, when disease affects our livestock it has implications not only for animal health and welfare but also financial impacts due to production losses.
In this interactive session, farm vets Claire Whittle and Dan Stevenson will explore a holistic approach to animal health from both a livestock management perspective to wider ecological issues such as the benefits of on-farm biodiversity to animal health. By understanding the drivers and dynamics of disease, from determining their root cause to identifying bottlenecks on farm – they invite you to discuss whether zero disease is a realistic expectation in a regenerative system.
