Sustainable control of Worms in Cattle
Internal parasites (worms) represent an important threat to optimising performance in both beef and dairy cattle. Feed conversion efficiency, growth rates and fertility will all be affected if cattle are carrying large burdens of internal parasites. There is an industry initiative which aims to improve the information available to vets and advisors about the sustainable control of endoparasites in cattle.
EBLEX and DairyCo have funded the compilation of a technical manual covering parasite lifecycles, diseases caused and best practice recommendations for use of anthelmintics in cattle.
