Abstract

On a farm infected with Dictyocaulus viviparus in central Cuba, calves were rotated between 12 pasture plots every 3rd day for 21 weeks. The prevalence of infection fell from 72.0% to 4.6% and mortality was controlled. Infection levels remained high in similar calves pastured in the traditional way.
