Free Fluke Test


Free fluke test!

Do you have a problem with liver fluke or rumen fluke infections in your animals? If so we would like your help!

Our project aims to identify Closantel resistance in liver fluke on sheep farms across the UK which would save time and money on unnecessary worming for your flock.

We are looking for farms (especially any with Closantel resistant liver fluke) who would be interested in finding out if their animals have liver fluke or rumen fluke. We would send you a kit to collect faeces (instructions and short questionnaire included), free return post to us and then we would report back to you with your results. The test and feedback is free (normally costs £15). All information collected will be confidential and will not be passed on to any third party.

Please contact us if you are interested in taking part [email protected] – 3rd September 2020
