Moredun is committed to sharing knowledge about developments in livestock health research and organises and participates in animal health events for farmers, vets and SQPs around the country throughout the year.
Every November, Moredun commits to holding a series of its own free evening meetings around the UK. From Orkney to Cornwall, Kent to Carmarthen, Moredun’s roadshow exists to support the livestock industry, help promote livestock health and answer queries about disease control.
The subjects and venues for the roadshow meetings are suggested by Moredun’s regional advisors, who represent the views of farmers throughout the UK. This helps ensure that Moredun’s roadshow meetings are of interest to local producers and those working in livestock health, and also that each area of the UK has an opportunity to host meetings on a subject of choice.
Moredun’s annual national Livestock Health Roadshow receives excellent feedback from attendees. Farmers, vets and SQPs alike, value the fact that Moredun’s meetings are always free, open to all and completely commercially unbiased, allowing livestock producers to make an informed choice about disease control on their own farms.
“Very informative evening that gave information at a level for everybody to understand”
Attendance at Moredun’s roadshow meetings has increased year on year, and now the meetings are CPD accredited too.
In order to ensure that the roadshow continues to be successful, the format for the events continues to evolve. The meetings now feature multiple speakers, both from Moredun and from the livestock industry or local VI centre, to present local data and case studies.
It is a large financial commitment to run an annual roadshow and Moredun is indebted to Quality Meat Scotland, Meat Promotion Wales and a variety of animal health companies who help cover the costs of these events.
