Since I've had such a miserable year with the sheep due to heavy parasite load on our pasture, I have now penned them all up in what will eventually be the spring garden (1/5 acre plot). I have a total of 12 ewes, most are PG, and 1 large ram. I'm wondering if I could feed them a daily dewormer pellet, like the Strongid C we feed to the horses. They are very flighty Barabados so handling them closely for oral drenching/ paste deworming is pretty stressful for them, though I do have that whole process down to an art now If I could feed them a daily dewormer that combats strongyles, which seems to be our biggest problem, that would simplify things. I would still deworm them with a paste or drench periodically, like we do for the horses. I also understand that we would need to observe a withdrawal period before slaughter.
