Achieving 99.8% efficacy in field studies will deliver results

Beef Central, 07/12/2021

Thirteen separate studies were conducted in multiple regions and conditions in Australia, with more than 1000 beef and dairy cattle. In every study DECTOMAX V consistently demonstrated high efficacy.

Dectomax V kills resistant worms, keeping them from reproducing and contaminating your pastures. That helps you stay ahead of resistance and keeps your herd healthy and productive. The worms on your pasture today ultimately become the worms in your animals tomorrow and then, if not treated, go back onto your pastures the day after that. Over time, the continuous use of ineffective drenches gradually leads to increased prevalence of resistant worms on your farm.


Further information

Dectomax V will be available from your local Vet and Rural Reseller from January 2022.

    Tell me about the period of continual killing/protection of worms, please.

    The product claims suggest it effectively kills ‘round’ worms, controls cattle ticks for 30 days, and controls sucking lice for up to 56 days. Editor
