ICOS and the Independent Livestock Merchants Association (ILMA) are calling for a pause to the introduction of new veterinary rules until a new online e-prescription system is fully functioning in all vet practices across the country.

From 28 January next year, the new regulations will require farmers to have a prescription for all wormers and pour-ons as well antibiotics.
