A few tips for those of you who have not been hit by a fire, flood or on-property accident.
Everyone has heard about the devastating fires in Tassie, NSW and Victoria. Last year it was floods and we are always reading of accidents on farms. Here’s a few things for you to think about before it happens to you.
Eight new regional programs cover the main sheep production areas of Australia and were developed by local parasitologists, veterinarians, consultants and scientists with extensive knowledge and experience in sheep worm control.
Each program takes a ‘what to do and when to do it’ approach and deals with:
grazing management and preparation of low worm-risk paddocks
breeding worm-resistant sheep
when to WormTest and when to drench
managing drench resistance
The practical, proven and cost-effective strategies enable you to create a long-term worm control program for your property that will keep you in control and not constantly reaching for a drench gun.
On the web site choose Your Program from the main menu and then choose your region. There is a summary for each region plus pages on each topic.
You can also download or print a full copy of each program when on the summary page.
