WHY CHOOSE LEVAMISOLE GOLD?

  • For your clear drench rotation

    LEVAMISOLE GOLD is a clear drench, providing an opportunity to rotate away from macrocyclic lactone (ML) or benzimidazole (white) drenches. Levamisole is still highly effective against barber’s pole worm and Nematodirus on many properties. Nematodirus is often a problem after drought or in lambing paddocks as the egg is resilient and can survive in hot, dry conditions for long periods.

  • Broad spectrum worm control

    LEVAMISOLE GOLD is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to a clear drench, including gastrointestinal roundworms and lungworm. These worms reduce overall productivity, especially in young animals. Weight gains can be reduced by up to 20% and milk and wool production can be affected significantly.

  • Highly effective against barber’s pole worm

    Resistance to levamisole in barber’s pole worm is not common, so LEVAMISOLE GOLD provides a cost-effective, short acting option to treat this worm. This is especially important if barber’s pole worm is the major worm on a property and an alternative to a macrocyclic lactone (ML) drench is required for the purpose of rotation.

  • Short withholding period and ESI

    Only approximately 0.9% of the initial dose of levamisole can be found in tissues. This enables LEVAMISOLE GOLD to have a very short meat withholding period and export slaughter interval, giving you the flexibility to get your lambs to market at the optimal time.

  • Cost-effective treatment

    Levamisole is a very cost effective drench, generally being the cheapest of the broad spectrum drenches. However price is only one consideration; the most expensive drench is one that doesn’t work.
