WIN A YEARS FREE WORMER

WIN a years worth of sheep wormer, a herbage larval test and a professionally planned worming programme worth up to £2150.

Two runners-up prizes of a worming programme and herbage larval test are worth £150 each. Just read the text and answer the questions.

Nows the time to make sure you are really worming effectively! High levels of over-wintered worm larvae on pasture, due to last years inability to move stock, has increased the risk of infection.

Enter our Wise up on Worms competition and you could win a free herbage larval test that will tell you the level and species of over-wintered parasitic larvae on your pasture. Also an expertly planned worming programme to select the most effective wormer from one of the three main groups. To avoid resistance, it is best to rotate your use of wormer group on an annual basis.

You could also win a years free supply of the recommended sheep wormer selected from the Novartis range, including Rycoben SC (1-BZ), Sure LD (2-LM) and Depidex drench (3-AV). All come with the on-farm support of our AMTRA-trained Youngs Farm Account Managers.
