Three bulls selected for high faecal worm egg counts and three bulls selected for low faecal worm egg counts were mated to Africander-Hereford cross cows. Faecal worm egg counts were taken on four occasions from the 132 offspring. Also, each animal was typed for 32 class I antigens of the bovine major histocompatibility system (BoLA). Least squares analysis of variance showed that line, sex and some of the antigens were associated with differences in worm egg output in the faeces. After… CONTINUE READING
