Expert advice on how to deal with worms in livestock will be available at a free workshop in Maungaturoto on Tuesday, August 13.
The Beef + Lamb NZ Wormwise event will take a detailed look at managing internal parasites using a system that details the playoff between parasitic control and resistance to drenches. It will be held in Maungaturoto RSA at 115 Hurndall Street from 11am to 3pm, with lunch included.
Topics covered will include the worm life cycle, drenching programmes, refugia (worm populations not exposed to drenching) and managing drench resistance on the farm.
There is no charge for the workshop, but registration is essential as numbers are limited.
