Effect on live weight gain and fleece weight of anti helminthic drenching of hoggets on the west coast of south island new zealand



Effect on live weight gain and fleece weight of anti helminthic drenching of hoggets on the west coast of south island new zealand



New Zealand Journal of Experimental Agriculture 9(2): 123-128



Between 1969-1976, production responses obtained from drenching young sheep with anthelminthics were examined in 11 trials at 6 sites on the west coast of the South Island. In 10 of the 11 trials, there were live weight gains and fleece weight responses to drenching. There were no significant differences in live weight gain between the use of levamisole and thiabendazole in the 3 trials where they were compared. Drenching > 3 times resulted in small nonsignificant responses in 4 of 5 trials in which frequency of drenching was investigated. Fecal egg counts measured in 6 of the trials showed that the period of peak parasite infestation was from March-May.
