There is a Drench Decision Guide (DDG) for the eight WormBoss regions, which were developed by local parasitologists, veterinarians, consultants and scientists with extensive knowledge and experience in sheep worm control.
You can use your regional DDG directly on the web and you can print them. Keep copies in the office, ute and with your drenches (printed DDGs are 2 pages).
On the WormBoss home page, choose ‘Solve your current worm problem’.
From any other WormBoss page, choose the ‘Drench Decision Guides button’ in the left menu.
