At Agritech Rural, we stock all types of drenches and can develop an animal health program tailered to your needs.
We encourage our producers to rotate the type of drench that is being used. If you do not rotate your drenches, you risk the problem of drench resistance occuring on your property.
TYPES OF DRENCH
Broad spectrum drenches kill all types of susceptible round worms of sheep. However if resistance is already present, not all worms will be killed. Types of Broad-spectrum drenches include:
Benzimidazole (BZ or White drenches)
Levamisole/Mirantel (LEV or clear drenches)
Macrocyclic Lactone (ML drenches)
These are drenches that kill only one or a small number of worm types affecting sheep.
