Fluke outlook for the New Year

Very high levels of Fluke are forecast 

There will be infectious stages (metacercariae) on the pasture waiting to infect your animals, so there may be cases of acute Fluke through January.

This will be a problem unless we have some deep penetrating Frosts to kill them off

Chronic Fluke disease shows up as Ill thrift and poor production. This is caused by Fluke picked up 10 - 12 weeks ago & the experts predict this will be a major problem in animals that were not treated adequately this Spring.

Please talk to us about the most effective treatments for your farm.

There is much concern about resistance to Triclabendazole (Fasinex) and we must make sure we protect this molecule for future years
