Autumn change and no reduction in spore counts

March 16, 2018

  • Hinuera – 120,000
  • Matamata – 5,000
  • Piarere – 115,000
  • Te Poi – 10,000
  • Walton 5,000


We are now receiving inquiries from farmers wanting advice on follow up zinc bolus treatments. As the numbers show, spore counts are still very high on many farms, meaning animals left untreated are at very high risk of suffering from Facial Eczema. Based on this, for animals that are due, the second round of zinc boluses should be going in now.
