Nematodirus is the main challenge for lambs in the spring, and the mild winter means it is already active – with the forecast for Leeming on the SCOP’s website predicting hatching within 7-14 days if the warm weather persists.

Keep an eye on the SCOPS Nematodirus forecast to give you warning of when action is needed. You can follow this up with worm egg counts which will also let you know when other worms become active on your farm.

Speak to our SQP’s for more advice and if you require a FEC Kit leaving out with your next order.
