Worm treatment: a key strategic pillar to increase productivity

Parasites such as worms can cause health problems and reduced productivity, leading to economic losses for the farmer. Even with high biosecurity approach, technical performance can be affected as well as animal welfare.

Pig and Chicken Worm Infection Diagnosis

Because worm infections are very common and can have significant economic impacts it is important to treat them.

On the other hand, you should be wary of how often you deworm chickens and swine to avoid unnecessary treatments. Deworming more often than necessary increases costs and bears the risk that worms develop resistance.

That’s why systematic and proper diagnosis is critical for optimal management of worm infections.

Strategic deworming is an important practice to control and prevent parasitic infestations.

Parasite Prevention

When animals eat an infectious egg, it takes several weeks to develop into adult worms that start releasing new eggs.

This so called prepatent period varies by worm species and is crucial for planning a proper deworming schedule.

If treatment intervals are longer than the prepatent period it is not possible to reduce the number of eggs in the environment.
