de-worming chemical in domestic animal manure

The agri-environmental specifications for management in Special Areas of
Conservation (i.e. protected sites) under the Irish Rural Environment
Protection Scheme (voluntary EU scheme) state that it is prohibited to
graze livestock treated within the previous week with pesticides which
leave persistent residues in the dung. 
On what type of consideration this is exactly based and whether a safety
margin is included I don't know.
Sorry that I can't be of more help.
