Choosing and Using Drenches to Limit Drench Resistance

How effective are drenches on YOUR property?

A drench is classed as ‘effective’ only when it reduces the worm egg count by 98% or more. At lower levels of efficacy, the worms on your property are drench-resistant.

What do you do to help combat drench resistance?

Effective drenches, combination drenches and short-acting drenches are all practices which can help slow resistance.   

Join us for a FREE webinar that describes how you can choose and use drenches that will limit drench resistance on your property.
