  • Animal Health always comes first. Donít sacrifice an animal for organic principles. If an animal is sick and cannot be healed organically, donít let it suffer just because you want to be 100 per cent organic - conventional treatments should be used then
  • Be prepared to have a lower stock rate and keep a sick animal paddock that has high herbal content
  • Pasture should contain a good herbal ley
  • Drench recipes are found in Grasp the Nettle
