products for cattle
COWS produces a list of
flukicide products for
cattle showing flukicide product names, active ingredients, age of fluke
killed, method of application, withdrawal period, and whether they also have
activity against other internal and external cattle parasites.
Dairy cattle and flukicides
NOAH and the VMD have issued a
joint statement outlining what products can be used at different stages of a
dairy cow’s production cycle, plus detailing limitations on use in dry period
and describing the withdrawal periods that must be followed, following changes
to the marketing authorisations of some flukicides. This advice is for dairy
cattle only, and does not apply to meat withdrawal periods.
