New drench launched

Shepparton News - Country News - - LIVESTOCK NEWS -

Vir­bac Aus­tralia has launched a prod­uct de­signed to rev­o­lu­tionise sheep worm con­trol.

Tridectin is the world’s only broad-spec­trum com­bi­na­tion drench with a reg­is­tered claim to kill triple-re­sis­tant and mon­epan­tel-re­sis­tant worms.

Vir­bac says this new class of com­bi­na­tion-drench for sheep of­fers pro­duc­ers the op­por­tu­nity to en­sure health­ier, more pro­duc­tive sheep.

The ad­vanced patented for­mu­la­tion com­bines po­tent chem­istry with the lat­est tech­nol­ogy, pro­vid­ing a re­li­able, safe and ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion against all the ma­jor worm species es­pe­cially bar­ber’s pole worm, small brown stomach worm, and black scour worm.

Con­tain­ing Mox­idectin, Le­vamisole and Al­ben­da­zole, for a ‘triple-pronged’ ap­proach to worm­ing, Vir­bac says its higher kill rate means fewer worms and eggs, as well as less pas­ture con­tam­i­na­tion — which re­duces the over­all re­quire­ment for in­creased drench­ing and there­fore de­creases the rate of se­lec­tion for re­sis­tance.

With pro­duc­ers gear­ing up for their first sum­mer drench, Tridectin’s ar­rival this week is de­signed to as­sist pro­duc­ers in clear­ing their stock of worms prior to the hot sum­mer con­di­tions.

Worm-in­fested pad­docks not only re­duce growth rates, pro­duc­tiv­ity and fer­til­ity, but they can even lead to an­i­mal death.
