How many times in a year do I have to control parasites?

These will differ between seasons and geographical locations because parasite prevalence and infestation is influence by the prevailing environmental conditions (e.g. hot, cold or wet conditions), and also livestock management practices (e.g. kraal and water hygiene) .
