The dangers of having infected cattle:

Liver Fluke:Beef cattle infected with liver fluke can suffer from weight gain reductions of between 0.5 - 1.6 kg per week. This makes the prevention of liver fluke a very high priority to the farmer.

External Parasites: Another factor that can negatively effect cattles' performance is ectoparasites. Cattle infected with lice will become irritated, which can cause a loss of appetite. Studies have shown that infected cattles' food intake can reduce by up to 20%

Worm Burdens. One of the highest contributors to productivity loss in cattle is worm burdens. Worms will not only cause poor health for the cattle but can also cause high costs for the farmer. An outbreak of gastrointestinal worms can cost a farmer up to €120 per head and an outbreak of lungworm can cost a farmer up to €60 per head.

Closamectin Treatment Regime

It is recommended that treating beef cattle at least twice a year is the most effective way of controlling the fluke problem on your farm. 

Housing: Cattle should be treated at the time of housing or just after housing. A second treatment may be needed if the cattle are housed early or if the area is highly susceptible to contamination.

Turnout: Cattle should be treated at 8 to 10 weeks after turnout. This treatment will kill fluke that have been picked up by cattle as soon as they were turned out. This treatment will also help reduce the reinfection of pastures. 

Outwintering: For cattle who are outwintered a treatment should be given in the late autumn to early winter. A second treatment may be needed in January/February.

Bought in Cattle: All bought in livestock should be treated and quarantined for at least 48 hours. This will help protect your herd from infections introduced from new cattle.
