From: Jonathan Fish, Challons Combe Farm, Kingbridge, Devon
Jonathan wants to investigate reducing liver fluke risk by mob grazing chickens and geese in wet fields and by streams. He has a lot of fairly wet fields and fluke has got worse on farm as his fields have got wetter. He would like to trial feeding chickens and geese to eat mud snails which are first stages of fluke risk.
Jonathan has spoken to a vet who thinks there's no fluke risk to the poultry. He now needs more farmers to get involved who are interested in the same idea. He would like to design a field lab to get help with the research & working out how to measure the effect.
