New study on Cryptosporidium

Are you a dairy or beef farmer?

Are you interested in prevention/control of Cryptosporidium?

Will you take part in our study?

Cryptosporidium is one of the most important infectious scour causes in young calves and can be very difficult to get rid of.

Scientists at the Moredun Research Institute and the University of Glasgow are conducting research on biosecurity and management practices that might help prevent the spread Cryptosporidium

If you are a farmer with a dairy or beef suckler herd in the Dumfriesshire area of Scotland and have had a history of Cryptosporidium on your farm, we would love for you to get in touch with us.

Researcher Frederieke Peto, a PhD Student at the University of Glasgow and Moredun Research Institute, wants to interview you on your farm about how you try to prevent or manage Cryptosporidium. In return, she can offer you Cryptosporidium testing of faecal samples from calves.

If you are interested in participating, please email: Frederieke Peto ( and/or Lisa Boden ( for more information.
