PONT and Peewits

Kennixton sheep grazing for lapwing at WWT Llanelli PONT cymruFor the last few years, PONT have worked together with Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust Llanelli and graziers Kennixton Sheep.

Take a look at the video below which summarises the project. Highlights include improvements in the health of the sheep, with greater weight gain, lower fecal egg counts and higher trace minerals than the peer group at home and on the second year of grazing, lapwing pairs increased from 3 pairs to 11!
