Faecal egg outputs and subsequent herbage larval contamination with third stage larvae (L3) of Ostertagia spp. and Oesophagostomum spp. from a herd of naturally infected sika deer Cervus nippon were examined in the same pasture in 2001/2002 in Lithuania. Sika deer were infected with Ostertagia circumcincta, O. kolchida, O. spiculoptera, Oesophagostomum radiatum, O. columbianum and O. venulosum. Faecal egg output in adult deer peaked in the spring during the periparturient period and also in… CONTINUE READING
