Anthelmintic Resistance to wormers is increasing and is one the biggest challenges within the sheep industry, impacting the health and profitability of many flocks. Minimising the risk of worm burdens and resistance to treatments ensures that ewes and lambs remain in good health and can achieve optimum growth rates to maximise profitability for long term sustainability.
This factsheet is part of the Sustainable Sheep Systems series and looks at how farmers can mitigate the risk of anthelmintic resistance within the flock by implementing simple, cost effective control measures.
