2022 CT Scanning dates and info

Kirsty & John from SRUC are offering their CT scanning service again in 2022.  ‘As Covid has not yet disappeared we will again be asking breeders to leave their lambs with us and return to their vehicles while scanning is in progress, this year.  We are planning to offer the full service across the UK in the same locations as last year.  Numbers for trips south will be confirmed on at least 100 lambs being booked in for a 2 day scanning session’
