|Title:||Worm egg counts in lambs decreased after administration of long acting anthelmintics to ewes||Contributor(s):||Dever, Michelle (author); Kahn, Lewis (author) ; Doyle, Emma (author) ; Walkden-Brown, Steve W (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/18742||Abstract:||Background: One strategy for providing good worm control and to reduce pasture larval contamination is to administer long-acting anthelmintics to lactating ewes. We have previously observed a decrease in the period of protection against 'Haemonchus contortus' in lactating ewes for long-acting anthelmintics on farms with known ML and BZ resistance. Excretion of long-acting anthelmintics in milk has been reported, which may account for our observations of a reduced period of protection in lactating ewes. Hypothesis - The elimination of a proportion of the active constituents of anthelmintics in milk will cause a reduction in worm egg counts (WEC) for untreated lambs, suckling ewes treated with anthelmintics.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Australian Society for Parasitology Annual Conference, Canberra, Australia, 30th June - 3rd July, 2014||Conference Details:||Australian Society for Parasitology Annual Conference, Canberra, Australia, 30th June - 3rd July, 2014||Source of Publication:||Australian Society for Parasitology Annual Conference Poster||Field of Research (FOR):||070708 Veterinary Parasitology||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||https://wormmailinthecloud.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/dever-m-et-al-asp_jun14-poster-m-dever_17jun14_final-1-wecs-in-lambs-lower-after-ewes-drenched-frm-md-nov15.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 115
