How it Works

About Zero Count Laboratories


Zero Count Animal Laboratories Pty Ltd (ACN 162 558 527; ABN 51 162 558 527) is a Queensland based family business offering a superior parasitic worm burden detection service to the Australian grazing industry, stud operators and farm pet owners.

Parasitic worms are a significant cost burden to graziers from worm related deaths, reduced weight gain, drenching costs and associated labor.  Fecal egg counting provides guidance as to when to drench, and gives an indication of the effectiveness of the drenching program.

The Directors at Zero Count have significant experience in the Boer Goat industry and understand the challenges of controlling parasitic worms, and the subsequent impacts on stock. The Managing Director is Sarah Collins who holds a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree, majoring in Production Animal Science. She has also completed a Certificate III in Agriculture at a goat, sheep, and cattle property. In addition to extensive University studies, Sarah has completed work experience in the now disbanded Queensland State Government Worm Buster Laboratory.  Sarah is a well-known and respected stud breeder in the Australian Boer Goat industry.  She also is a qualified Level II Boer Goat Judge, and has been awarded a diploma for passing a senior level South African Boer goat course.
