Quebracho (Schinopsis quebracho-colorado) tannin for the treatment of sheep gastrointestinal parasites. Effect on faecal egg counts and lamb growth

  • S Jamieson (a1) and F D DeB Hovell (a1)

Extract

Farmers have become heavily reliant on anthelmintics for the control of nematode parasites Due to the widespread development of anthelmintic resistance, alternative approaches for control of nematode parasites are needed. Cruden and Hovell (2008) reported that commercial lambs treated with quebracho tannin had reduced faecal egg counts and improved lamb growth. This paper reports a second in vivo study with quebracho tannins at higher dose rates in lambs.
