Targeted Worming Offers Huge Benefits

A precision approach to worming sheep could reduce wormer use in UK sheep flocks by 40%, improving lamb performance, reducing greenhouse gas emissions on-farm, and slowing the rate of drug resistance.

Scientists at the Moredun Research Institute have developed a method to identify poorly growing lambs using an electronic weight crate, allowing for targeted selective treatment, without the need to worm an entire flock. Treatments are given before animals have lost weight.
