Conor O Sullivan, Walterstown, Co. Meath entered dairying in 2015. Prior to this his family managed a mixed enterprise made up of mostly tillage farming, so it was no small task to move direction into dairying. He started by purchasing 120 in-calf heifers and from there has built his way up to over 200 milking cows. Conor may have made this look easy, but much effort has been realised to get the farm to its current level of production as can be seen here:

Key statistics:

• Cows in Milk: 203
• Calving interval: 368 days
• 2018 AV Milk Solids: 470kgs
• 2019 forecasted solids: 520kgs
• Herd Type: Cross Bred
• Daily yield: 22 Litres (6700L/ annum)

This year Conor made a change in his protocol to control lungworm by using Eprecis injection. This came as a result in consultation with his local vet practice and hearing of its success through the media.

Conor's comments on why he chose Eprecis were as follows:

• Once it's done its done, you know the cow got the correct dose
• Quicker acting
• Didn't have to worry about scattered showers on the day
• Only took 90 minutes to do 203 cows

Conor's farm manager commented "it was magic stuff; in two days the coughing had completely stopped". Conor says he would suggest farmers to "have it in your yard each year so you can react when needed rather than waiting for it to be delivered".

In 2015, Conor has a bad outbreak of lungworm, this resulted in reduced yields, so Conor knows how important it is to monitor and treat accordingly. "Eprecis will be part of my annual worm control strategy" commented Conor.

Eprecis winner small

Also pictured is Nevin Farrell, Manager of Shannonside Vets Kilrush Co Clare.

A number of months ago, Interchem ran an exciting competition for farmers who purchased an Eprecis herd pack to be in with a chance to win a cattle weighing scales valued at €1,600. The cattle weighing scales was a perfect prize to sit with Eprecis, to ensure farmers have administered the correct dose rate as effective worming relies on accurate dosing according to weight. It is important that the right dose of wormer is given correctly to ensure maximum efficacy.

Eprecis Injection is the only injectable endectocide for the treatment of internal and external parasites in dairy and beef animals. It also has a zero milk withhold period.

Eprinomectin is the active ingredient for the control or treatment of parasites including lungworms, stomach worms, mites and lice. Eprecis is available in 250ml bottles and 100ml bottles.

Interchem would like to thank the hundreds of farmers for taking part in the competition, and wish Breda every success with her prize in the future. For further information about Eprecis, visit or talk to your local veterinary or farm/co-op supplier.
