Season Long Parasite Control in Cattle

Given the variability of the weather here in the UK, it is hard to predict the parasite challenge from one year to the next.
However, it is vital to ensure that neither worms nor flies impact on your animals growth rate of your dairy, beef or suckler herd during the grazing season.
Worms can reduce growth rate by up to 30% and flies can reduce growth rate by up to 0.3kg a day and milk production by up to half a litre per day.

When and what to use
The key to ensuring that parasites are controlled effectively is to make correct decisions on the type and timing of treatment.
What are your options?
• CYDECTIN 10% – A long acting injection for cattle – providing the opportunity for immunity development during treatment. As there is a weight related dose rate it can represent a cost efficient option for younger stock. Cydectin does away with concerns about missing doses in the summer and as a result gives you a season long solution.
• AUTOWORM – Gives the opportunity to change the class of wormer on the farm as part of a resistance management protocol. No need to set stock and there is the opportunity to develop immunity due to the pulsatile release of the bolus. Again there is the comfort of knowing that the treatment will last for the whole season.
• FLECTRON – not only acts as a repellent, the active ingredient cypermethrin means as the chemical on the flies is absorbed, they become hyperactive and die within minutes. There is no need to retreat cattle once the tags are inserted and there is no milk or meat withdrawal.
