Natural Worming

Recommended Posts

Resistance to antibiotics is a huge problem not only in relation to worms but other bugs as well due to the overuse of these drugs - so I lean towards alternatives, diet and FEC to reduce my horses worm burden. 

The article states the trial of BioWorma has been over 20 years with rigorous testing to be safe and is best when used in a rotational grazing system...so could be another tool in combination to the approach of our horses health care and pasture managment.

I don´t think we´ll be able to get this in Europe, but I agree with the rotating grazing system (like equicentral system) to help against worms. It´s supposed to be really helping to graze horses with cattle and sheep as well, as they kill each others worms/ eggs apparently.

I have been using diatomaceous earth for a number of years now with great success.  The only downside is that it must go into a wet feed.

It has many other health benefits too.
