Using Doramax® on Dairy Farms (Cows & Calves)

In dairy cows, Doramax® Pour-On can be used at drying off, provided the dry period will last for a minimum of two months.

Conveniently, the treatment will clear the animal out of any internal worms while also eradicating external parasites.

Doramax® Pour-On will protect animals against reinfection from nuisance lice (sucking and biting) for a prolonged period post-treatment. Our cow will be set up well for her dry period and a subsequent productive lactation.

For dairy calves, Use Doramax® Pour-On at 3, 11 and 19 weeks (if necessary) post turnout in set-stocked R1 (first-season) calves.

This will prevent a build-up of larvae on pasture, reducing the need for further treatments later in the season.

The intervals are also designed to protect these extremely vulnerable, immuno-naïve animals, while allowing them some exposure in order to build up natural immunity. Ensure these intervals are tightly adhered to.

Where Doramax® Pour-On is used early in the season for calves, it is best practice to pick from other wormer families for any housing treatments required, e.g. Albex 10%.

Similarly if products from other wormer classes like Albex/Zerofen or Chanaverm are used early in the season, we can treat dairy calves similarly to how we would treat drystock animals at housing from a parasite control point of view.
