    This vaccine in addition to other techniques could save a lot of sheep lives in situations where barber pole worms are resistant to all available classes of wormer. Love it! Hope it comes to the states.

    The article time says there is "no withholding period." I wonder if that includes milk withholding? It sure would be nice to not have to dump milk for 2 weeks when deworming is needed!
