On this week’s DocTalk program, Kansas State University veterinarian Dan Thomson discusses parasite control with Dr. Dave Rethorst, also a K-State veterinarian who serves as director of outreach for the Beef Cattle Institute. Rethorst outlines the importance of pre-weaning treatment for internal parasites in calves this spring, as well as spring control of internal parasites in yearling heifers and young cows. He also discusses the types of products appropriate for use in controlling internal parasites and external parasites, which are the primary concern in older females.
