Agrii has direct accounts with all of the major animal health suppliers, and as a result we are able to provide the right product at the right time. The major factor facing the industry regarding internal parasite control in recent years is the incidence of anthelmintic resistance, which has increased sharply in the UK. Evidence in a large number of flocks is finding that one or more of the chemical groups are no longer effective against some worm species. If we are to reduce the progress of resistance over the next 5 to 10 years, we have to revise our worming strategies and advise Parasite control: Internal Anthelmintics (wormers) are used to treat and prevent internal parasite infections, i.e. roundworm, tapeworm, lungworm and liver fluke. MEET THE TEAM “When you deal with Agrii, you get quality advice and quality products at a reasonable price. We pride ourselves on the professionalism of the advice that we give. We exist to help and enhance your business.” STUART DAVIES Animal Health Specialist our customers on their practices and attitudes. We need to explain that changes in worming practices are necessary and why. The challenge ahead is to balance the need to control internal parasites, while safeguarding both the animal performance and welfare. Choosing the most appropriate product for the correct parasite present is vital. Targeting the right species will give predictable results and may mean that re-treatment is not required. The information on Sustainable Worm Control Strategies (SCOPS) at www.scops.org.uk is very helpful regarding worming strategies and is now used within the industry as a guideline. Please see the next two pages for a guide to anthelmintics. PRODUCTS FALL INTO THE FOLLOWING GROUPS: 1. BZ Benzimidazoles: White 2. LV Levamisole (Imidazothiazoles): Yellow 3.
