Spore counts are based on randomly chosen paddocks throughout the district, with grass samples supplied on a regular basis by these contributing farms. The grass sample is cut from grazing height at several points throughout the sample paddock so as to give an accurate count. 

If you would like to check the spore count of a particular paddock or area you can bring a sample in to us at either our Opotiki or Whakatane clinic. You need to provide at least 60g of grass cut (not pulled up) at grazing height, and make sure to include grass from several different parts of the paddock. The grass should be supplied in a clean, dry plastic bag. You can expect to receive the result of the spore count by the end of the day. 

When the spore count is high it's time to get protecting your animals from Facial Eczema. Click here to download our Facial Eczema handout.
