Increased live weight gain and wool weight from anthelmintic drenching of ewe hoggets in South Canterbury



Increased live weight gain and wool weight from anthelmintic drenching of ewe hoggets in South Canterbury



N Z J Agr Res 11(2): 407-419



Over a period of 5 years the production responses obtained from drenching young sheep with thiabendazole were examined in 14 trails covering 8 localities in South Canterbury. In the 1st 4 trials 3 drenches given at monthly intervals between Jan. and June produced responses ranging from 1.6 lb to 12.6 lb live weight gain and 0.2 lb to 1.6 lb increase in greasy fleece weight Over the remaining 10 trials drenching at monthly intervals from Dec. or Jan. until Aug. or Sep. increased mean live weight gain by 13.3 lb (range 6.3 lb to 18.6 lb) and mean greasy fleece weight by 1.3 lb (range 0.9 lb to 2.4 lb) compared with undrenched controls. The results also indicated that 4 drenches, given in Jan., March, May, and July, could achieve responses averaging 74% of the live weight gain and 79% of the increased greasy wool production from sheep drenched at monthly intervals.
