B+LNZ Wormwise programme

The B+LNZ Wormwise programme provides farmers with the latest knowledge and techniques to manage worms effectively and sustainably and minimise drench resistance issues. It also aims to lift productivity and the welfare of livestock.

Wormwise does not contain recipes or programmes for drench use. These should be developed once you understand your farm’s resistance status, with help from a competent advisor. Worm management should focus on the farm system and nutrition first – drench should not be the main means of managing worm challenge.

Wormwise was formed in 2005 and is solely funded by B+LNZ. We work in partnership with DairyNZ, DINZ, MPI, Animal and Plant Health NZ and the New Zealand Veterinary Association.  

Follow Wormwise on Facebook for regular, seasonal worm management updates, and keep an eye on your B+LNZ e-Diary for Wormwise workshops in your region.
