The first report from Gribbles for facial eczema has now arrived. Of special note is that there are already hot areas within certain regions.
Don’t take risks with your livestock. Remember that 100 days at a count of 5,000 can be just as damaging as a day at 500,000. The damage is cumulative and animals that are already sensitised earlier in the season or with previous liver damage of any cause are at greater risk when counts rise. Facial Eczema can be the biggest production killer on farms in the North Island and is very preventable. MineralBoost Zinc is registered with the ACVM as a veterinary medicine for the prevention of facial eczema and should be included at 200gms per cow per day with your supplementary feed.
