WRML. Closure of the WormBuster Laboratory, Queensland (government cut-backs)

‘A note from Arthur Le Feuvre, one of the WormBoss Team re Maxine Lyndal-Murphy and the Qld WormBuster Lab:


The WormBuster lab will be closed on the 28 th (Thursday) March (tomorrow) and Maxine, Judy and Wayne made redundant.

I think you would all agree that Max and her crew have done a sterling job over the last 20 odd years.

In that time they have provided the QLD sheep and goat industries with invaluable advice and recommendations on improved worm management in the Qld environment. They have also made a significant contribution to National knowledge."

95th District Veterinarians Conference, Armidale NSW 18-21 March 2013

‘An excellent conference and one example of the great service that LPHA District Veterinarians provide to primary industries and regional NSW.

Attached is a copy of the program. The papers should be up on the Flock and Herd website by the end of April. If I think of it, or I am prodded, I will remind you then.


Attached is WormFax for February. ‘Some high egg counts around the traps.

After a relatively dry spring and early summer in many areas, exacerbated by above average temps, there has been quite a bit of rain since mid-January, especially in summer rainfall (northern) parts of NSW.

This should be up on our website soon, where you will also find previous issues, plus explanatory notes. http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/aboutus/resources/periodicals/newsletters/wormfax


I seem to recall Novartis means ‘new art’ or ‘new skills’, but Zoetis? (the new moniker for Pfizer Animal Health).

Lee Taylor (of Zoetis) told me at the DVs Conference that Zoetis means ‘pertaining to life’.

And here is the blurb from the Zoetis website [ http://www.zoetis.com/about

‘Our name, Zoetis (z-EH-tis), has its root in zo, familiar in words such as zoo and zoology and derived from zoetic, meaning pertaining to life. It signals our companys dedication to supporting the veterinarians and livestock producers everywhere who raise and care for the farm and companion animals on which we all depend. ‘
