Handbook for farmers

The Wormwise handbook is a central source of information about the principles and strategies for sustainable worm management for New Zealand farmers.

The principles themselves are quite straightforward; it is their practical application that is more complicated. Farming systems vary tremendously and what works for one may not be practical for another. For this reason, it is impossible to develop a set of “rules”. Instead, farmers should seek to understand the principles and then make their own decisions on how they might be applied to their farm.

This book is designed to help develop that understanding. A successful worm management plan should be designed in close cooperation with your animal health adviser.
