Strategic Worm Control Farming Note

Summer grazing for young cattle should incorporate a planned strategy to reduce exposure to worms but allow development of immunity. Good management of pastures and strategic worm control to reduce worm burdens will improve cattle growth rates and decrease the need for anthelmintics.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Grass management to reduce worm infection
  • Preventing build up of larvae on pasture
  • Natural immunity
  • Dosing strategy and methods
  • Monitoring worm levels

Issued October 2013.

This note is designed to be used in conjunction with the Youngstock - Gutworms and Lungworms and understanding Anthelmintics Farming Notes and the Anthelmintic Guide.
