Detection of anthelmintic resistance in Ireland

Published 5th August 2014 | Article by Megan Thomas

This is the first report of AR in cattle in Ireland. Farmers, agricultural advisers and veterinary practitioners need to be made aware of the ­findings to ensure continual adoption of best practice in relation to the use of anthelmintics on farms, including the rotation of anthelmintics. A larger multisite study is needed to determine if the study findings are an isolated incident, or if AR is common on cattle rearing farms in Ireland.
