Worms present a significant production threat to grazing cattle with infection costing the industry millions of pounds a year. Worms are parasites that feed off of your cows' bodies, draining nutrients out of your animals. Cows with severe worm infestations may become significantly lethargic or even die as a result of their poor physical condition.
Keeping a lid on parasite numbers not only makes for a happier, healthier herd, it can also save producers significant expense when it comes to drench costs and the labour needed to administer it. Integrated pest management (IPM) practices can decrease producers’ reliance on drenches and vaccines; assist in the timely identification of diseases and ultimately reduce stock losses.
A regular worming schedule can protect your cows from developing a significant parasite infection.
