Cattle parasite atlas

The ‘atlas’ of parasite control in cattle has been developed as a rapid reference for advisors and producers on the best practice for parasite control for all the major livestock regions in Australia.

The atlas describes the program of treatments and the interventions for each climatic and geographical region of Australia.

Regional guide

The regional guides highlight:

  • The main production systems.
  • The most important parasites.
  • Management procedures that may be used to assist in their control.
  • The cost-effectiveness of those programs.

The recommendations for each region are generic and therefore need to be customised to the needs of individual producers. Producers should seek the advice of their animal health advisor to develop a parasite control program for their property.
