Sheep Health And Welfare Group conference 2018


The one day conference will welcome farmers, vets, processors, retailers and academics from across the sheep industry.

The conference will be held on 21 November at Drayton Manor in Staffordshire and delegates will hear about the latest developments in sheep health and welfare. 

SHAWG chairman, Charles Sercombe will start the day by giving his vision for the sheep industry including Brexit and Defra policy. Charles said: “This year’s SHAWG conference will showcase the hard work of both industry and academics in our quest to become the best sheep industry in the world for health and welfare. There are exciting and challenging times ahead for the sheep industry and with Brexit, never has there been more opportunity to have a say on its future. I hope attendees will pick up inspiration and new ideas to help them stay competitive."
