Resistance to anthelmintics in nematode parasite of the digestive tract is a major concern in small ruminants and particularly in goats. One possible solution to limit the development and spread of resistance is to give treatments on a selective basis, i.e. by targeting the most susceptible animals within a flock rather than treating all the animals. In dairy goats, epidemiological studies have shown that, within a flock, goats in first lactation and the multiparous ones with the highest level… CONTINUE READING
