As a rural practitioner I would like to record my concern regarding the problem of benzimidazole (BZ) drench resistance in sheep.

The number of properties in my practice diagnosed as having BZ drench resistance by this method doubled as a result of this season`s investigations. There is now 6% of the Taihape practice sheep and beef farmers with recognised resistance. The total sheep population involved would be at least this 6% figure as some substantial properties are included. Moreover, the-faecal egg count reductions following BZ use on problem properties were commonly in the order of 20-50%. The properties were investigated only after requests from the owners who were experiencing clinical…
