Similar worm burdens were acquired by lambs under the two systems and weight gain was also similar. A check in weight was observed after weaning which was referable to nutritional stress and an additional worm burden acquired as a result of an increase in pasture larval count at that time. The design of management systems to avoid the post-weaning… CONTINUE READING
