A three pronged approach is recommended by AHI’s Parasite Control Technical Working Group to tackle parasites on Irish farms.
- Strategic Treatment
This approach is a move away from the older ‘continual and repeated blanket treatment’ approach previously endorsed on farm, and aims to combine good grazing practices with effective testing to achieve the best results on farm. It is designed to be a more sustainable approach, aiming to minimise Anthelmintic Resistance and minimise treatments on farm.
Reducing parasite burdens on farm will increase productivity and result in increased profitability.
