Internal Parasites in Grazing Ruminants
Download Full Text
Grazing animals are exposed to parasites throughout the grazing season. Both external parasites, such as fleas, ticks, flies, and lice, and internal parasites can infest animals and impact health and performance of grazing livestock. Even at relatively low levels, parasites can decrease animal performance and have negative economic impacts on producer profitability. Implementing a good parasite control program is an important component of herd health. This publication will focus on understanding and controlling internal parasites in grazing ruminants.
