Abstract

The cumulative total helminth parasite burdens of ranch calves during their first 7 months of life on the North-eastern Mountain Grassland of South Africa were determined during 2 consecutive years (1997 and 1998). Trichostrongylus axei was the most abundant nematode parasite followed by Cooperia...

The acquisition and intensity of infection with gastrointestinal nematodes and with Oestrus ovis are compared over 2 years in sheep grazed intensively (26-36 sheep/ha) or non-intensively (12 sheep/ha) in the winter rainfall Overberg region of South Africa. Sheep grazing intensively on grass/legume...

Abstract

During a period of 14 months, two tracer calves per month were slaughtered after one month's exposure to natural helminth infestation on a farm in the Northern Transvaal Bushveld. Total parasitic helminth burdens, which were never large, were determined in order to define their seasonal incidence....

Abstract

Sheep and calves in South Africa, naturally infected with cestodes and nematodes, were treated orally with 20 or 25 mg cambendazole/kg body-weight. The sheep were slaughtered 7 to 14 days and calves 5 to 7 days after treatment and the alimentary canal examined. In sheep, cambendazole was highly...
