You do have a good argument there Steve. I think we perhaps are being a bit belt and braces and hadn't considered the downsides of regular treatment with Dectomax as you've pointed out. We also haven't had wool slip since the first year we had our sheep. Look like we must review our programme. Thanks for all your (very insistent  ;D ) advice  :-*

Is it just me, or do others not have the facilities to move sheep off pasture after worming?  I have had so many problems with mine that I am having to worm more frequently but need to keep pasture clean for my ewes when they lamb, so wormed sheep have to stay where they are.


Shouldn't actually be much of a problem at this time of year, would be more of a problem in summer when there are big hatches. You could always split grazing with electric.

I aim to both advise and annoy at the same time.  :P
