The main objective of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of the faecal egg count reduction test (FECRT) to assess the resistance status of ivermectin (IVM)-resistant isolates of the cattle nematodes Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora, using the controlled efficacy test (worm...

Abstract

Recent reports of suspected ivermectin (IVM) resistance in Ostertagia ostertagi have highlighted the need for research into the mechanisms of IVM resistance. However, there are no reports of resistant field isolates of O. ostertagi, which have been characterized for molecular research. Therefore,...

Abstract

The prevalence of Cryptosporidium in calves younger than 10 weeks was estimated in a cross-sectional epidemiological study on 100 dairy (n=499) and 50 beef (n=333) farms in East Flanders (Belgium), using a previously evaluated immunofluorescence assay (Merifluor®). The calf prevalence was 37% (95%...
