A longitudinal demonstration project was carried out in 2005/2006 for thirteen months to determine the effectiveness of a strategic community-based worm control (CBWC) programme in the control of gastrointestinal (GI) nematodes and Fasciola gigantica in cattle. Two villages namely, a CBWC village (Ilula-Masukanzi) and a village without CBWC (Kilolo-Luganga) were randomly selected in Kilolo district, Iringa region of Tanzania. Animals in both villages were under the traditional management system…

Effectiveness of strategic anthelmintic treatments in the control of gastrointestinal nematodes and Fasciola gigantica in cattle in Iringa region, Tanzania
TLDR
It is concluded that a programme of four strategic treatments per year was effective in controlling GI nematodes and F. gigantica and improved weight gain.
Effect of strategic gastrointestinal nematode control on faecal egg count in traditional West African cattle.
TLDR
FEC levels decreased until 4 years of age, after which they remained on a constant low level, and the variability of returns to anthelmintic treatments between herds did not seem to be influenced by FEC at the herd level.
Gastrointestinal Nematodes in Indigenous Zebu Cattle under Pastoral and Nomadic Management Systems in the Lower Plain of the Southern Highlands of Tanzania
TLDR
An additional wet season treatment is advisable in immature cattle, but may not be needed for mature cattle owing to the availability of plenty of mature, good quality pasture, and anthelmintic treatments in the late rainy/early dry season and early rainy season are recommended.
Epidemiology of Fasciola gigantica and Amphistomes in Cattle on Traditional, Small-scale Dairy and Large-scale Dairy Farms in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania
TLDR
The proportion of animals passing fluke eggs increased gradually from the early dry season and peaked at the end of the drySeason and the early part of the rainy season, indicating a significant influence of the type of management on the prevalence of both Fasciola and amphistomes.

The Effect of Treatment with a 1% Injectable Formulation of Moxidectin during the Rainy Season and at the Beginning of the Dry Season on Gastrointestinal Nematodes in Cattle from Communal Areas in Zimbabwe
TLDR
Anthelmintic treatment conferred significant weight gain advantages on treated calves, weaners and cows and may be related to a longer residual effect against abomasal parasites like Haemonchus in comparison to small intestinal worms like Cooperia.
Cross-sectional Prevalence of Helminth Infections in Cattle on Traditional, Small-scale and Large-scale Dairy Farms in Iringa District, Tanzania
TLDR
Results indicated that the type of management, especially the grazing habit, has a significant influence on the prevalence and intensity of GI nematodes and flukes and the variation in the prevalence among management and age groups within systems can be used as an entry point towards rational use of anthelmintics for each management system.
