SmartWorm - how does it work

Enables Targeted Selective Treatment (TST) of wormers

Drench resistance is common in the majority of sheep flocks in Ireland and the UK. Reducing the use of these drugs to as much as necessary but as little as possible is key to protect against the development of further resistance. SmartWorm provides the most usable technology available to  target treatment to the animals that need it in real time.  Integrated app reducing drench use by 40-50% without compromising on animal performance and welfare.
