Parasites in livestock – current PrimeFacts (NSW DPI)

Below are current (May 2020) Primefacts (information sheets/articles) on parasites in livestock (and also one on zoonoses).

As always, check other, reliable sources to make sure the information is still current and accurate, particularly if the articles (to which the links (below) are pointing) were not written in the last few years.

WormBoss, which is part of ParaBoss, is heartily recommended. ParaBoss also includes information on sheep lice and flystrike (as well as ‘worms’) in Australia.

WormBoss / ParaBoss is still current and active (at May 2020), so the information should be up-to-date.

Aspects of parasite management that may change fairly frequently are : drug resistance, new products on the market, and new tests and providers of relevant services.

There is this NSW DPI Primefact (written 2010):

Worm-control-in-horses -Sarah R 2010

Overall it is very good, but it should be read in conjunction with some newer material:

i.e. newer material influenced by the AAEP guidelines.

 

 

 

Meat causes diabetes??

Retweeted

Measured blood sugar again 1 1/2hrs after eating 1lb of fatty Pork Shoulder and half a dozen eggs and it had risen from 5.1 to, well, 5.2mmol/L! Meat causes diabetes? Seems unlikely from my viewpoint!🤔
