The ParaBoss extension team is delivering a one-day workshop aimed at empowering producers by improving the management of external and internal parasites in cattle herds in the north.

This workshop will cover buffalo fly, cattle tick and worms and allows workshop attendees to consider their control activities within the context of the complete suite of parasites local to their area.

Attendance is free of charge, and all workshop resources and catering will be supplied on the day. Places are limited to ensure excellent interaction between presenters and attendees.

We look forward to you joining us at the pilot. Please register here:

The workshop will facilitate:

  • An improvement in overall skills and confidence of cattle producers in their understanding of ticks, fly and worm management
  • Improve access by producers to key sources of information
  • Less production losses/mortality from parasites in herds
  • Increased effectiveness of parasiticides and drenches
  • Decreased impacts of chemical resistance in all parasites
