    Would the white wormer for nemo be less potent for the more summer type worms that say a clear (cydectin) or yellow wormer at this time of year?

    It depends on any existing resistance and what you’re targeting .

    You wont know without doing reduction tests on your sheep (before an after FEC with different wormers)
    In the absence of doing^^^ (which i would recommend every time you worm sheep---what's the point in treating animals if you don't find out how well the treatment worked?) then a sweeping generalization would be that there is more resistance to white wormers than other drugs
