Qualifying Products

Getting ready for routine drenching

  • Summer drench programmes are aimed firstly to treat worm burdens in the animal, but more importantly, by doing this pasture contamination with worm eggs is greatly reduced.
  • Drenching every 28 days with effective drenches results in a 21 day period of NO worm egg output and then a short 7 day period of low egg output. This is Refugia.

Tips for a successful summer calf drench programme

  • In general calf drench programmes start when calves are 8 - 10 weeks old (once calves have been at pasture for a month).
  • Many calves are under 100 kg at their first drench. Only use products that are safe for this weight e.g. Combomax or Scanda.
  • Once calves are above 100 kg, products containing abamectin can be used e.g. Triplemax Oral, Alliance Oral or Dualmax Pour-On.

Vaccinate and protect your calves from clostridial diseases

  • One of the most common causes of death in rapidly growing calves is Pulpy Kidney or sudden death syndrome.
  • Use a 5in1 vaccine programme such as Multine B12 for prevention.
  • This means two vaccinations, 4-6 weeks apart to get long-term protection.

  • Lambs pre-weaning greater than 15 kg use a triple combination drench that doesn't contain abamectin e.g. Triplemax iTape.

  • Lambs at weaning greater than 20 kg use a triple combination drench e.g. Triplemax Oral, Alliance.

Protect your lambs from clostridial diseases with a 5-in-1 vaccine

  • One of the most common causes of death in rapidly growing lambs is pulpy kidney.
  • This is due to any short-term immunity from the ewe running out as lambs approach weaning.
  • Therefore lambs need to start their own 5-in-1 vaccine programme. 

Use a 5-in-1 vaccine such as Multine® B12 .

  • This means two vaccinations, four to six weeks apart to get long-term protection.

Flystrike prevention for lambs 

Flystrike in lambs causes severe weight loss and animal suffering.

  • Flies are attracted to lambs by smell.
  • Faecal staining (Dags), urine staining, and wool rot are the most common attractants.
  • The use of a preventative product is the best strategy in minimising the risk of Flystrike.

Cyrex™ is a concentrate liquid used through jetting races or shower dips. Cyromax Spray-On is a ready-to-use formulation.

Quarantine Drenching

All incoming lambs should be quarantine drenched with an effectively registered drench. This means one of the novel drench families.

  • Purchasing Animals is a big risk of introducing drench resistant worms to your property. 
  • A quarantine drench must therefore have the greatest chance of killing all worms.
  • This ensures the greatest chance of a fully effective drench. We recommend using Zolvix Plus
