Chemvet Newsletter Volume 33: Winter 2017

3 Dec, 2019

New Product

Great news for our sheep clients! Chemvet has a brand new product – Vetmec BodyGuard Pour-on Lousicide for sheep and lambs (see over page for details). Imidacloprid has a proven track record as a ‘knock down’ lousicide in sheep up to 7 days off shears and lambs up to 2 months old and protects treated sheep for 4 weeks from reinfestation.

It is rainfast and can be applied with the handy Vetmec magnum 40 mL applicator. A draw-off tube and 6 meters of delivery hose is available that allows treatment of a whole race of sheep direct from the drum. This eliminates the constant filling of a backpack.

We are always looking at developing highly effective and cost efficient new products for our clients. As you can see in the photo above, I am with Ron Palmer on Ron’s property taking blood from cattle to trial a new product. Although Ron is no longer at Chemvet, he is still part of the team!

Product Catalogue

In this edition of our newsletter, rather than news items we have listed our products in catalogue form. We hope this gives you a handy reference to the high quality products we have on offer for the sheep and cattle producers.

Rains required all over!

Weather conditions across pastoral Australia varied dramatically from district to district from last Spring through to this Autumn. Some districts reported shockingly dry conditions right throughout this period. Others had patchy seasons with only a few recording good solid rainfall at the right times for their particular district. However, it appears all districts no matter their past history are requiring good rainfall over the early winter period. For many, things are on a knife edge before it gets too cold to limit growth when the rains do come.

Kind regards and wishes for abundant, early winter rains all over.

Murray Grant and the Chemvet Team

PS: If the rains have come before this newsletter gets to you – great news!
