Youngstock: Treat as your vet or advisor recommends based on fluke and worm challenge in your area
In-wintered cattle: treat at housing to remove accumulated worm burdens and all three stages of liver fluke
Bought in Stock: Treat before joining the main herd to help avoid buying in fluke and worm problems.
Combinex Cattle can safely be given to young or pregnant cattle, cattle not producing milk for human consumption, or dry cattle

Adult fluke shed eggs into the bile duct, which pass onto pasture in faeces. The eggs hatch and larvae (miracidia) infect mud snails. After developing in the snail, which prospers in warm wet conditions, the fluke larvae leave the snail and form cysts on pasture. Stock are infected by ingesting cysts from infected pasture. Early immature fluke hatch from the cyst, and burrow through the liver, developing into adult fluke and causing damage on route to the liver bile ducts.
Weight gain over a 20 week period in cattle treated with triclabendazole was 6Kg greater than in cattle in which only adult and immature fluke were killed.
What does 6Kg represent?
6Kg at £1.65 = £9.90 per animal treated2 Or £2,475 in a herd of 250 cattle.
