Cattle dips are used to control external parasites, primarily tick species, on the North Coast of NSW.
NSW DPI manages a dip when cattle are being dipped as part of a regulated program to eradicate cattle tick (Rhipicephalus [boophilus] microplus or australis).
Amitraz, also known as Taktic®, is used for eradication programs.
When a regulated eradication program is not underway, the owner of the dip is responsible for maintaining the dip structures and dipwash concentration.
