Farm does not have a veterinary parasite control plan

The best way of preventing parasite disease is to have a parasite control plan for your farm. The plan should identify which parasites are on the farm, and when and how they impact on your stock. Controlling liver fluke needs to be considered as part of the overall parasite control plan and discussed with y our veterinary surgeon. This should also help identify what treatments to use, which are effective, and when to how use them for maximum benefit.
