Faecal Egg Counting
For sustainable worm control, sheep should only be wormed if there is a worm burden present. A Faecal Egg Count (FEC) test is used to count the number of worm eggs in a particular dung sample, and can be used to monitor the worm burden. It can also be used to determine which types of worms or other parasites may be present. This then means the right treatment can be used at the right time.
