Sheep that are highly resistant to parasitic nematodes can suffer bad diarrhoea due to the inflammation associated with rejection of ingested larvae from pasture. We hypothesised that challenging parasite-resistant sheep indoors with nematode larvae would result in reduced faecal dry matter, and that faecal dry matter would be lowest in sheep challenged… CONTINUE READING
