Bought a few ewes to Tup early, all abit last minute. Will probably put the Tup in next week and was just thinking of giving the ewes a combi drench. Any harm in doing them this close to tupping?
 
Excuse my ignorance but we don't have a fluke problem and don't routinely treat any sheep for it. I thought September was a good time to treat for fluke if it were an issue. The reason I ask is that we've taken on a block of land a few miles away and it's very different land to ours. It can flood and is wet all year round. We're keeping running ewe lambs/ theaves there at the moment. I'm keen not to bring fluke onto our farm so want to make sure I treat them before they come back home end September early October. What product would you recommend?

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
