Section 1 - Health


Internal Parasites

34. You should control internal parasites by using effective anthelmintics (drugs to treat parasites) or vaccines. As part of your herd health and welfare plan, you should ensure that treatment is based on the life cycle of the particular parasites you are tackling. You should treat your animals for parasites in accordance with veterinary advice. Organic producers, in particular, should seek veterinary advice on this aspect of their herd health and welfare plan.
