CRT Catalogue Pull-out Feature : CRT Spring 2013 - Tech Update
With wool prices almost doubling, sheep producers have an added incentive to control lice in their flock and when it comes to choosing a product to apply off shears, there are many good reasons to use Avenge. Bayer Animal Health veterinarian, Dr Neil Cooper, who helped develop Avenge said two key features of the product were its rapid action in killing lice and the residual protection it gave against re-infection. Dr Cooper said that Avenge remains active in the fleece for many weeks with the benefit that it kills lice hatching from eggs. "When sheep are shorn, all stages of lice --- adults, nymphs and eggs are present in the fleece." "If the lousicide degrades too quickly after application, it may not be able to kill any late hatching nymphs." "Avenge is the only knockdown with a label claim for four week protection against re-infestation, killing any lice that hatch following treatment," he said. Farmers know that shearing is a hectic time and it's common for a sheep to jump a fence and join another mob. During mustering, it's also easy to leave a sheep or two behind in the paddock. The four week protective period allows producers time to pick up any unshorn stragglers then shear and treat them with Avenge. Bayer Animal Health sheep brand manager, Sally Fairless, said that the label claim of four week protective period set Avenge apart from other knockdown lousicides. "The market has recognised the reliability that Avenge gives them in controlling lice and the longer protective period is a bonus," said Sally. "A farmer recently told me that Avenge ticks all the boxes and that sums it up pretty well. " "Not only does it kill all known strains of resistant lice, Avenge is rainfast, unshorn lambs can be treated up to two months of age and you don't need to wear gloves to apply it." "With an unmatched protection period for a knockdown product, it's no wonder Avenge is the farmer's first choice for off shears lice protection this year," she said.
