AHI invites you to become part of the European SPARC knowledge network to learn with and from each other about the best practices for worm control in grazing livestock.

The SPARC (Sustainable Parasite Control in grazing ruminants) knowledge network is an EU-wide project that aims to reduce resistance and reliance on anthelminants in ruminants, by identifying, applying and sharing sustainable worm control strategies.

Livestock worms are resisting our efforts to control them. Chemical control of worms using wormers (anthelmintics) has previously worked well but that situation is changing with medicines no longer working as effectively as they used to against the parasites that affect our sheep and cattle. Sustainable parasite control is about adapting our practices so that we can delay resistance from developing, keeping these medicines working effectively for as long as possible.

Learn from the experts across Europe in parasite control and see how control methods are applied in different countries. By signing up to our mailing list you will be joining this network of individuals and kept informed with newsletters, news and upcoming events.
