Faecal egg count (FEC) reduction tests analyses the effectiveness of drench actives by testing animals before and after drenching. DrenchSmart is Techion’s FEC reduction test. For sheep farmers, DrenchSmart tests the seven commonly used drench actives and active combinations on sheep on your property.
FECPAKG2 revolutionises parasite management in sheep. The innovative FECPAKG2 diagnostic platform makes sheep faecal egg count testing (also known as FEC or worm egg count testing) easier and faster to do virtually anywhere, by anyone. Frequent, accurate worm egg count testing enables sheep farmers to treat the right animals at the right time with the right treatment.
With FECPAKG2 you can save time and money, improve animal health and performance and take a more sustainable approach to the use of worming treatments.
FECPAKG2 can significantly reduce the use of worming treatment, resulting in better outcomes for sheep farmers. This was clearly demonstrated in the Sainsbury’s Project field study. Most case study farmers in the Sainsbury's Project reduced wormer/drench use - some by up to 50% - by using FECPAKG2 to shift from scheduled worming, to worming only when their lambs, ewes and hoggets needed it.
Sheep farmers can take charge of worm testing and parasite management in their animals with FECPAKG2. Effective and simple to use, FECPAKG2 provides you with reliable data in real time.
The simplicity of FECPAKG2 provides sheep farmers with the ability to obtain immediate, reliable data without having to send the tests to a lab. FECPAKG2 can be used by anyone, almost anywhere, be it in your barn, shed or kitchen.
Sending information by the internet frees you from transporting faecal samples to a lab/clinic. This is particularly useful if you are remotely based. FECPAKG2 also generates faster results, often within an hour, enabling you to promptly adjust treatment programmes accordingly.
The future of parasite control needs to include non-chemical methods, such as breeding, to ensure all controls remain effective. PhenR provides sheep farmers with data that allows them to rank, select and breed animals that are naturally resistant to parasites, and lessen their reliance on worming treatments.
FECPAKG2 revolutionises parasite management. It is an internet connected, image based diagnostic platform scientifically validated to conduct faecal egg count (FEC) tests on animals. With FECPAKG2 you can save time and money, improve animal health and performance, and use worming treatments more sustainably.
Drench resistance is a massive and growing problem. Using ineffective drenches can significantly reduce lamb weight gain, farm income and lower the value of your property. A DrenchSmart faecal egg count reduction test shows you which drench actives are most effective at killing parasites in animals on your property.
