- Drench resistance is a
major concern for NZ sheep farmers, resulting in
production losses and increasing costs to
- Drench resistance can be
effectively managed by using strategic drenching and an
integrated approach to worm management.
- An effective preventative lamb
drenching programme is essential to parasite management.
By preventing an uncontrolled autumn larval peak of
parasites on pasture, all classes of stock on the farm
benefit from the reduced larval challenge.
- When routine lamb drenches are
not fully effective, they can allow resistant parasites
to accumulate in sheep and contribute to a build up of a
resistant population of parasites on pasture.
- STARTECT is a unique
combination drench, containing the novel active
derquantel and abamectin.
- Because STARTECT knocks out
susceptible and resistant parasites, it can break the
resistance cycle and prolong the effective life of older
