Liver fluke threat

Veterinary laboratories and some factories are starting to report isolated incidences of active liver fluke infestations in the livers of lambs and ewes. The highest number of reports, as expected, is along the western half of the country and parts of the midlands and north. As such, it is important to be aware of the risks and follow up on the health status of livers in animals presented for slaughter and submit any cases of unexplained mortality for post-mortem analysis.
