Commonly asked questions about Oramec Drench
Q. Will Oramec kill worms that are resistant to control by white drenches?
A.Yes. Oramec is routinely used in wormer rotation programmes. Also, it is often used to treat sheep that are brought in from market and neighbouring farms where the worming history is either not known or may be in doubt. It makes sense to treat all sheep with Oramec and keep them isolated, preferably on hard standing, for 48 hours before mixing them with the main flock.
Q. Will Oramec control inhibited time-bomb worms and help prevent the spring rise?
A. Yes. Treat the ewes just before you house the sheep or just prior to lambing. This will kill the dormant worms in the sheep that would emerge in the spring and contaminate pasture at the time when lambs are beginning to graze.
