RELACS project partners Soil Association and Scotland Rural University College developed practical guidelines for farmers and farm advisors on using faecal egg counts to improve worm control in organic sheep farming.
The latest project practice abstract describes how faecal egg counts can be a powerful tool determining the levels of worm infections on farm and thus significantly improving parasite control strategies.
