We have been seeing a spike in faecal egg counts over the last week or so. This is most likely due to the wet weather we’ve been experiencing. Please go out and monitor your animals – body condition score, check mucous membrane colours, and check faecal egg counts! Even if you did them only 2-3 weeks ago, they may have increased. I would increase the frequency of checking BCS and mucous membrane colour too because things can change quickly under these conditions.
Check out our Resources Page for helpful information on how to perform body condition scoring and how to check for anaemia.
