Why use FECPAKG2?

The benefits of using FECPAKG2 have been proven through research and projects. The Sainsbury’s FECPAKG2 Project shows just how much knowledge can be gained from using such a valuable tool on the farm.

By using FECPAKG2, you can:

  • Increase financial returns by minimising time spent on FEC testing, and reducing unnecessary drench costs.
  • Reduce the risk of drench resistance by monitoring performance of drench use, analysing which drench works, and only treating animals that require it.
  • Gain control of parasite management for your livestock through on-farm FEC processing and easily accessible data.

Larval IDs

Dawbuts now offers a service in conjunction with FECPAKG2 for the identification of worms. Available as a separate pack, you can now send your samples in to have the larvae cultured and differentiated. This service was previously only in conjunction with Dawbuts WEC Tests, but now can be conducted on their own.

Introducing our Worm ID Kits! They should be used in conjunction with the FECPAKG2for:

  1. monitoring of worm types in stock, particularly mobs that haven’t been tested before 
  2. identification of seasonal threats
  3. assisting with drench selection i.e. if barbers pole worm dominant, can use closantel or  organophosphate
  4. confirmation of the worm types surviving a drench.
