Internal Parasite Management
Due to our high rainfall and Mediterranean climate, internal parasites are a constant challenge. With resistance to chemical controls becoming an increasing problem, we encourage drenching only at strategic times and/or based on faecal egg counts. This should be done in combination with non-chemical controls such as grazing management, genetic selection for resistance and balanced nutrition. We offer in-house, rapid turnaround faecal egg counting, suitable for determining drench requirements and checking post-drench efficacy. We also offer comprehensive drench resistance testing and recommend each farm conduct this test every 2-3 years. We are endorsed by the ParaBoss Worm Egg Counting Quality Assurance Program, the only independent program in Australia that benchmarks worm egg count service providers. We are happy to discuss and formulate a custom worm control and monitoring program for your farm.
