Tapeworm - Treat or Test?

Wednesday, 27 September 2017 13:46
For horse owners, the arrival of Spring is synonymous with tapeworm treatment. In general, horse owners in the UK have willingly adopted a strategic approach to worming based on faecal eggs counts (FEC). However, many are reluctant to adopt the same approach to tapeworms and continue to treat twice annually in spite of not having information about the infection status of their animal. On continuation, I provide some information about this common parasite, and best practice methods to address it. The Equine Tapeworm There are a number of species of tapeworm in the UK which are capable of infecting horses;…

The Role of Iodine in Foetus Development

Tuesday, 26 September 2017 16:50
Deficiency of iodine can often come as a surprise to producers following a bad calving season. Adult animals can appear to cope relatively well for extended periods of time in spite of being deficient in iodine. While they may appear clinically healthy to the naked eye, regular monitoring of performance indicators would give an early warning that action and investigation may be appropriate. Ideally farmers should be scheduling regular monitoring of trace element blood status into their herd health plan in late pregnancy (approximately 3 months pre-calving). This would allow them to take action while disease is sub-clinical and before…
A particularly warm and wet start to Summer in 2017 may result in a greater risk of liver fluke disease this Autumn meaning UK farmers must be ready to take action.

Nutrition in the run up to tupping is critical to ensure success. Every year farmers are spending money on various supplements for their ewes often without knowing what they actually require. To guarantee optimum nutrition you should be working with your vet to determine the current trace element status of your flock and your vet can then advise which trace elements, if any, are required. Nutrition in the run up to tupping is critical to ensure success.

Flies are notorious for causing a nuisance to cattle but are you aware they can be responsible for more serious issues, such as the transmission of disease between animals?In the UK there are at least 20 species of fly which feed on cattle. Different species of flies feed on different secretions or tissues. Some pierce the skin and feed on blood; while others feed on secretions such as sweat, skin secretions, saliva, or tears. Some flies even feed on excretions such as urine or faeces.There are two ways in which flies cause harm to cattle:NuisanceAnimals which are exposed to a…

Trace Elements and Growing Lambs

Thursday, 06 July 2017 14:40
There is a great deal of pressure when trying to finish lambs for sale and there are numerous factors which can result in delays. Trace element status of growing lambs is an aspect which should not be overlooked as deficiencies and toxicities will lead to reduced productivity.Did you know that an adequate supply of cobalt is critical for lamb growth? After cobalt is consumed by the lamb, it reaches the rumen where bacteria utilise the cobalt to produce Vitamin B12. This Vitamin B12 is integral to glucose synthesis and thus impacts on how the lamb utilises its food (as such…
