Our Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test (FECRT) results for 2022 showed that drenches were not working effectively in over a third of cases.
Almost half of the single-acting drench tests showed resistance or suspicious results, compared with 33% in the double-acting group and 11% of the triple-acting/novel drenches. All the more reason to check your flock this season to ensure your drenches are doing the job.
Drench checks were done across 12 farms in 2022. *Combined results for ‘Resistance’ and ‘Suspicious’
