Abstract: Worms continue to be the most costly animal health issue for the Australian sheep industry. The WormBoss worm control program applied in the summer rainfall tablelands region of NSW has been demonstrated to reduce the annual cost (and its between year variation) of worms by over $5.00 per ewe. Adoption of the WormBoss control program provides a financial and risk management advantage for sheep producers though history suggests that achieving on-farm adoption of management programs requires a concerted and long-term approach. As part of this approach, a Worm Boss regional worm control program, Drench Decision Guide and worm control workshop have been developed, through the CRC for Sheep Industry Innovation, for the summer rainfall region of the tablelands and slopes of north-eastern NSW and south-eastern QLD. This approach will be used as a template in other regions to establish regionally-relevant WormBoss services.
