Good rain over most of the state has relieved the feed situation. Expect worm activity to lift from current levels. Monitor regularly, especially those mobs most at risk ie ewes in poorer body condition. Liver fluke is starting to show up.
Generally worm activity has lowered, mostly due to drier conditions. Eastern parts are still under challenge. The biggest challenge facing sheep producers in most districts (apart from dogs) is drench resistant worms.
Rain over the last few weeks has given a lift to farming and grazing. In around 3 weeks expect to see the worms getting active. Regular monitoring is essential to prevent crashes in ewes and lambs later.
Some rain has improved the outlook for pastures. WECs are generally low, which is great. However, resistance to some key drenches is getting more prevalent and severe. Use more sustainable management if you want to have effective drenches in the future.
