BioWorma® is a natural biological control containing the fungus, Duddingtonia flagrans that captures and consumes infective worm larvae (including chemical resistant/anthelmintic multi-resistant larvae) within the manure of grazing animals. This breaks the re-infection cycle that sustains the worm population in grazing animals.
Livamol® with BioWorma® is a ready to use product that contains the fungus along with a nutritious blend of proteins, energy and polyunsaturated oils plus added vitamin and minerals which are all important for the development and maintenance of immunity of young, growing grazing animals.
Through good nutrition, these animals are better able to cope with parasitism and this has a positive impact on their resistance and resilience to worms.
