FARMREADY – Reimbursement $ $ $

TO: WormMail mailing list  (recip.undisclosed)                    [wormmail 200904301440]

This is not directly worm-related, but many WormMailees or their contacts would be interested, especially as the people on the WormMail list are:

* the best

* highly educated/motivated

* interested in further training / especially if there is a reimbursement


Alas, I see the Faecal Egg Count Course is not included (yet?) (Yes, it’s hard to believe…).

By the way, there are vacancies in the one day course on May 13 at Tamworth: if interested,

* phone Cassie Gardiner or Julie Chapman on 6763 1100 (the voicemail on their direct lines is not working) or

* email:

Extra tidbit:

May Day occurs on May 1 and refers to any of several public holidays.[1] In many countries, May Day is synonymous with International Workers’ Day, or Labour Day, which celebrates the social and economic achievements of the labour movement. As a day of celebration the holiday has ancient origins, and it can relate to many customs that have survived into modern times. Many of these customs are due to May Day being a cross-quarter day, meaning that in the Northern Hemisphere it falls approximately halfway between the spring equinox and summer solstice.

'new drench on the block'

This article is not just about the new sheep anthelmintic ‘Zolvix’ (monepantel).

When will Australia get Zolvix? Frankly, I can only guess. According to one grim review, by David Leyonhjelm , it could be a couple of years.
