Focus Site Project: Straw bedding options for the lambing shed

Project objectives:

The main aim of the project is to evaluate the difference between cereal straw and rape straw on flock health (particularly lameness incidence), cost of bedding and its value post housing as FYM. This project may play a part in reducing the requirement to treat lame ewes, therefore reducing antibiotic usage on farm.
