Alternative Approaches to Livestock Health
Non-conventional farming approaches to livestock health are mostly ignored or dismissed by researchers and by many organisations and institutions which purport to be impartial and independent. It often appears that there is a prejudicial culture of denial which holds that natural, complementary or alternative methods have no merit and therefore cannot work.
The outcome is that, for too long, the true picture of farm animal health has been obscured; farmers’ voices are not heard and their knowledge and expertise is not documented. It also means that the potential for natural and alternative methods to clean up the food chain and the land remains un-evaluated.
Our priority, therefore, is to redress the balance and tell the whole story. The first step is to gather up-to-date information from livestock farmers about any non-conventional methods, products and approaches they may use.
