Abstract

Parasites reside inside or outside their hosts and get host nutrition and blood. Here, we have emphasized economic losses in cattle caused by parasitic diseases due to ecto- and endo-parasites (flies, ticks, mites and helminths). We have outlined different methods/models including economic...
