A representative sample of animals should be weighed before treatment. Dose the mob to the heaviest animal by live weight in each group (ewes, wethers, rams, lambs).
Where there is a large variation in size within the group, dose rate should be based on the label directions for each weight range. Do not underdose. Drafting into two or more lines may be appropriate, to avoid excessive overdosing.
