Worming Paddock Mixture 70% Organic

Ref: mixwormorg

High parasitic worm populations in ruminant stock can have significant affects on animal health and production. Several species of plant are known for their ability to reduce worm (nematode) populations, these are know as 'Natural Anthelmintics'. Introducing a natural anthelmintic into the diet, such as the species shown in this mixture, can significantly reduce worm populations, both in the field and in the digestive system, helping reduce vet bills and improve animal health.Designed for small paddocks, this mix includes carefully chosen species which reduce and control worm populations in ruminant livestock. If you are experiencing a high worm burden in your livestock, a small area planted with this mix can be grazed for short periods on a regular basis to supplement their regular forage and improve animal health.
