Experts in Animal Health and Nutrition
Here are at R.M.Jones we are great believers in using the right medicine at the right time, even if that’s advising you not to treat your animals. With the increasing risk of resistance to many wormers, it is now more important than ever that we treat these medicines with respect and only use them when they're really needed. For this reason we offer a faecal egg counting service to check if your animals need treating.
Access to all the major animal health companies and wholesalers
R.M.Jones are members of Downland – a national network of animal health distributors who work together to source the best products in the UK at competitive prices.
We stock a wide range of animal medicines and feeds including wormers, vaccines, pour ons, lamb milk, calf milk, cobalt and selenium supplements, horse feed and layers pellets.
We have formulated our own range of SuperStock mineral and feed buckets specifically to suit our Three Counties & Welsh Marches soils. We analysed hundreds of soil and forage samples taken in this area to come up with a range of buckets to balance the deficiencies we have in our soil – and to help your stock to thrive.

- Advise on, prescribe and dispense a wide range of veterinary medicines. Such as the treatments for:
Worms including Nematodirus,
Sheep Scab & Lice,

Fecpak - treat the right animals at the right time with the right treatment
Our faecal egg counting services uses the second generation Fecpak from Techion. With the FecPak you can save time and money, improve animal health and performance, and use worming treatments more sustainably.
We run this service out of our Hay Farmcentre, but we can accept, transport and keep samples refrigerated at all of our Farmcentres.
The FECPAKG2 allows us to process samples quickly and sample images are analysed online by an accredited Techion Lab Technician.
Resistance is becoming more of an issue on farm. We all know the wide spread resistance to white wormer, but we are starting to see some resistance to other wormer groups.
Resistance can be a largely unseen problem, but will be costing you in poor feed conversion and lower liveweight gains.
We can carry out efficacy testing to check if the last worming active you used was effective. We will just need a pre-worming sample, followed by a post-treatment sample to determine if the treatment used was effective and advise you on the best course of action.Contact your Local Farmcentre
