Copper oxide wire particles

Copper oxide wire particles (COWP) have been shown to reduce parasite loads in sheep and goats. Members of the American (Southern) Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control have led the research efforts investigating the efficacy of COWP as an anthelmintic agent for sheep and goats.
