Sheep Worm egg count sample collection 

·       Poo should be collected as fresh as possible – ideally still warm when it’s collected

·       Should come from around 10 different animal to get a representation of the group (a small amount from each)

·       A heaped tea spoon per sample is enough but better too much then too little

·       Bring sample in a sealed plastic bag or pot

·       If not collected the day of the meeting then can be stored in the fridge overnight but no longer than that

·       Animals should all be from the same age or management group. (Different ages or management groups would all need separate counts – the offer is for only one!)

·       Submit as much info as possible with the count eg. Last date treated and with which product
