Ashley Neely is our sales and marketing administrator but she also owns and operates her own mobile equine and agricultural worm egg count business which operates all over Ireland.
EFEC Nutrition is a mobile equine and agricultural worm egg count business operating in the North and South of Ireland.
The business, which is owned by Ashley Neely, our Bluegrass Horse Feeds Sales and Marketing executive, has been established for nearly three years.
The company offers clients on yard faecal egg counts which help diagnose the horses worm burden and advises on how to keep their horses healthy.
As part of running her business Ashley delivers talks and demonstrations to horse owners and riders on a range of topics including the science of parasitology and general equine nutrition. She’s also had the opportunity to represent EFEC Nutrition at various specialist equestrian shows and events across Northern Ireland, including CAFRE equine technology showcase event.
Ashley said: "Studying at Reaseheath has helped me gain knowledge and practical stills to start out in the equine industry. Thanks to support of my lecturer Dawn Gale, and her passion for parasitology, I found my gap in the Northern Irish market."
Resistance to anthelmintic’s is a growing concern but implementing a strategic worming programme will decrease the chances of resistance developing.
Parasitic infestations can lead to health and performance related issues. But by conducting worm egg counts you can develop a picture of the parasitic burden within your yard and treat accurately.
EFEC was the first Northern Irish stockist for the Equisal tapeworm test for horses. As well as on yard tests and instant results, EFEC provides a postal service with results provided within three to four days.
