 We had a good farmer meeting with HayVets on August 9th 


Take home messages:

Scab mites can survive for 17 days off the host

Scab mites do not feed every day so may take time to kill the mites Faeces and/or saliva can remain on sheep after mites have died causing continued allergic reaction

ML injectable are also wormers so ensure their use is necessary at this time of year and avoid repeat doses

Get a diagnosis - is it scab?

Select appropriate treatment option - SQP or vet for advice
Use treatment appropriately - follow label instructions

Coordinated approach across neighbouring farms and those sharing grazing - all treating with appropriate products within a 2 week window
