Hedgecutting and boundary reclaim from brambles and overgrown weeds. We will be starting the autumn/winter hedgecutting campaign in a few weeks so if you’re not already on the list, please contact me for information.
Spraying thistles in a sheep grazing paddock to avoid the devastating effects of Orf (Thistle disease).
Thistles can cause Orf in sheep and lambs, (sometimes called thistle disease or scabby mouth). Thistle disease is a nasty and highly contagious infection resulting in painful scabs and lesions in and around the mouth, nose and gums.
Thistles cause Orf by causing cuts and scratches on the lips and nose when sheep graze on thistle heavy pasture. These cuts allow the infection to develop and spread. It then becomes highly contagious and can spread throughout an entire flock.
It is important to manage thistles on grazing land to minimize the risks of Orf and the devastating affects it can have on whole flocks.
