The annual program describes the program of treatments and interventions for each Australian climatic and geographical region (Figure 1). The recommendations for each region are generic and therefore need to be customised to the needs of individual producers and delivered by those with knowledge in the field.
The programs have been updated from the MLA cattle parasite atlas and are a compilation of available information that represents the current best practice based on 45 years of investigation, research and application by veterinarians, advisors and producers.
