Cross-industry letter supports SCOPS message on group 4 and 5 wormers

8th July 2021

An open letter has been issued to the UK sheep industry, encouraging producers to take up the SCOPS message and integrate the two newer wormer groups - 4-AD (orange) trade name Zolvix - and 5-SI (purple) trade name Startect - into their worm control plans.

The letter, signed by Moredun scientist Dave Bartley, NSA Chief Executive Phil Stocker, SCOPS Chairman Kevin Harrison and SVS President Amanda Carson, emphasises two roles for group 4 and 5 wormers.

  • Within quarantine treatments.
  • As a mid-to-late season dose for lambs.
