Sheep farmers called on to make their voices heard
Sheep farmers are being called on to make their voices heard on what the main challenges and needs are in the sheep farming industry.
EuroSheep – a European-wide network about practice-driven innovation to improve sheep profitability – is seeking farmer views for a survey it is running.
It is estimated that participants would need to spend approximately 20 minutes to complete the survey.
According to the research group:
“This survey is the first step of a wider European project called EuroSheep [“European Network for interactive and innovative knowledge exchange on animal health and nutrition between the sheep industry actors and stakeholders”] which is funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.”
The study aims to increase sheep profitability. The next step will involve providing solutions to the main challenges and needs identified in this survey, the researchers added.
There are no right or wrong answers; it is your opinion we are seeking in this survey.
This project is led by Idele (France), with the collaboration of other research and development centres and organisations from France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, UK, Spain and Turkey.
SRUC researcher Claire Morgan-Davies and Teagasc’s Tim Keady, from the UK and Ireland respectively, are involved in the project.
“The information gathered will remain confidential and will not be used for other objectives beyond those specific for the EuroSheep project. The global results of this survey will be available publicly,” organisers concluded.
