Boree Park held their inaugural Open Day on July 25. The event was supported with a large turnout of sheep producers, consultants, agricultural professionals, and veterinarians in attendance.

Abbey Animal Health Western Australia Business Manager, Josh Sweeny, was one of approximately 90 attendees at the event. Attendees were given the opportunity to closely inspect a range of spectacularly looking White Suffolk rams.

Several speakers gave very informative and well received talks covering topics such as EID tags, sheep and goat traceability, and MLA’s Peta Bradley presented advancements in eating quality traits achieved through ASBV genetic selection.

The attendees were treated to an array of delicious food such as lamb pies, skewers, and sliders…YUM, excellent food all round!

Feedback from attendees was very positive and appreciative, with most commenting on the quality of the information delivered, particularly around important advancements in genetic selection, nutrition, and animal health management now available for sheep enterprises nationwide.

A big thank you to Boree Park for organising and hosting the event.

Abbey Animal Health are excited to announce the launch of EXISHIELD™ GOLD Pour On for the control of Sheep Lice.

EXISHIELD™ GOLD is a dual active pour-on that contains imidacloprid and abamectin, both lousicide’s are recognised as highly effective in combating lice in sheep. The actives work synergistically to help provide better, overall, long lasting sheep lice protection.

EXISHIELD™ GOLD is a highly effective lice management lousicide and should be considered as your first choice in lice protection and management, given its two actives and their ability to work synergistically in providing sheep the treatment and control of susceptible strains of sheep lice.

EXISHIELD™ GOLD™ can be applied immediately and up to seven days after shearing, and it will provide up to five weeks of lice protection. It’s priced competitively so that you can afford great lice protection for your sheep.

As EXSHIELD™ GOLD contains imidacloprid, a member of the neonicotinoid family of chemicals and abamectin, a member of the macrocyclic lactone family of chemicals, resistance may develop to any chemical. We would recommend you use a non-macrocylic based drench, such as Abbey COMBITAK to help minimise worm resistance.
