interested to hear if people are seeing more liverfluke in harvested deer due to the mild winters and wet summers .
Significant increase in ewe hoggs and fattening lambs this year. Same with deer taken in the bottom of the Glen. Hinds on the tops are pretty much clear, which would suggest they are not dropping down at night to the wetter areas to graze much in the Autumn. Reds seem to cope pretty well with even high levels of fluke that would kill off sheep in short order but even if chronic disease not obvious it must contribute to general winter mortality.
