We provide parasite identification and laboratory diagnostic services to livestock producers. We advise on worm, fluke, coccidiosis and tapeworm burdens in sheep, cattle, horses, goats, alpaca, pigs and chickens. With one of our reply-paid testing kits it's easy to send us a worm test on your sheep, cattle, horses, goats, alpacas, or any other species of animal. We save you time and money by enabling you to drench only animals that need it. This stops animals from being exposed to chemicals unnecessarily and stopping worms from becoming drench-resistant, possibly causing you many problems. We can also identify the algae growing in your dams and identify parasites, spiders and insects that are bothering you.
COVID restrictions: we are still operating during COVID restrictions! However, for improved health and safety, the lab is operating with reduced staffing and testing may be a little slower. If you have a large number of samples to be tested, we'd appreciate it if you could let us know in advance (by email or phone) so that we can plan accordingly. If you're dropping off samples, please leave them in the white bucket outside the front door. For herds / flocks, we can perform bulk testing much faster than 10x individual animal testing. Thanks for your understanding!
See the Lab Notices section for information on operating hours during Public Holidays.
SAMPLE DROP OFF: Samples may be delivered directly to the Allfarm Animal Health / Parasite main office. If the door is locked they may be placed in the white bucket just outside the office door. Samples cannot be dropped off outside of office hours, as the gate is locked. It's a good idea to call ahead (on the number below) to ensure the office is open to receive your submission.
