EPIC scientists demonstrate the importance of slaughterhouse data to understand the risks of liver fluke across Scotland

Lucy Gilbert: Liver fluke causes serious disease (fasciolosis) in cattle and sheep, resulting in production and economic losses. Liver flukes use mud snails as an intermediate host, and wait in damp vegetation to be eaten by grazing animals to complete their life cycle. They develop and move to the liver where they inflict major damage, resulting in liver condemnation at slaughter.
