Sheep and goats centre
Working together to solve the challenges of the sheep and goat industry
Bristol research has focussed on the productivity and welfare issues of lameness and abortion in sheep. The goat industry is funding a major study into goat health problems which affect productivity.
Our farm animal veterinary practice (Langford Vets), has client farms (mostly small holders/farms raising sheep and goats). Many of these local producers use Bristol’s on-site commercial/research abattoir and butchery, providing potential for supply chain research.
100 Ha lowland farm with grazing for sheep. A breeding flock of 100 New Zealand Romney ewes, lambing in March. Sheep can be housed or grazed.
