Country: Turkey

Dairy or/and meat sheep: Dairy-Meat

Source of information: Ministry fact Sheet, Vet. Associations

Level of solution: Knowledge

Aim: To avoid animals loses due to epidemic illness and infections


  • Treating diseased animal-decision making on isolation or killing by a explanatory poster for the most common diseases seen for the region for a year long
  • Necessary vaccination from the local authorities will be introduced with a booklet and brochures for a 1 production year.
  • A common vaccination data for general sheep production will be provided as a PDF and the main limitations for vaccination will be underlined for critic periods (gestation, AI etc)

Expected benefits: Increased flock health and less incidence of infectious diseases.

Prerequisites and/or limits:

  • Farmers need to use vaccination-understand the importance
  • They need to be trained when to make vaccination
  • Vaccination has a plan and farmers disregard that
  • It needs time to settle the understanding of Vaccination planning and practice
