Take targeted, sustainable parasite control action to save time, money and maximise results

Single wormer group resistance is becoming common and multiple wormer resistance is on the increase too.

Torch Farm Vets offer an in-house service to give you convenient access and rapid results, backed up by our experienced clinicians ready to discuss the findings and plan a control strategy for your farm.

Our in-house laboratory gives same day results followed up with a written report providing guidance on the best course of action.

This can be used as a one off investigation or as part of one of our Torch Farm High Health Plans.

Why monitor faecal egg counts?

  • Make financial savings on the cost of wormers

  • Make time savings by only worming when necessary

  • Reduce the risk of build-up of wormer resistance

  • Best practice for organic herds and flocks

  • Allows informed choices to be made

We recommend using this facility to:

  • Check wormer efficiency

  • Monitor worm/coccidia burdens

  • Assist when there is clinical suspicion (ie loose faeces or poor performance)

  • Differentiate coccidia and gut worm infestation

It is our aim to work as part of your team of advisors to ensure good quality healthcare that is value for money.
