The well-known benefits of deworming cattle include improved reproduction, higher daily gains, and heavier calves at weaning. However, using an extended-release dewormer can be a game changer that gives the greatest return on investment. Dr. Jody Wade, a professional services veterinarian with Boehringer Ingelheim, talked about when to use an extended release dewormer.
Wade said extended-release dewormers can even last all season, which cuts down significantly on stress.
Wade said producers may hesitate because of the initial cost of a longer-acting dewormer, but there are significant payoffs.
Additionally, monitoring and diagnostics help producers get the most out of their deworming program.
