Chapter 17 (Page no: 312)

Grazing management and helminth control on stock farms.

This book chapter discusses three main aims of grazing management as a means of controlling nematode and trematode populations and limiting their impact on their hosts, namely: to limit the acquisition of infective stages (larvae and metacercariae) by susceptible hosts in order to reduce the parasite challenge and its effect on the health and performance of cattle and sheep, provide nutrients in sufficient quantity andof good quality so that the natural resilience of the host to parasites can be supported, and include specific legumes, herbs and other nongrass species that have proven direct or indirect benefits in reducing the infectivity of pasture, parasite numbers or enhancing host resilience.
