There are potentially 2 different types of host response which could be targeted when seeking to breed sheep which require minimal frequency of anthelmintic treatment to maintain acceptable health and productivity in the face of nematode challenge. These are "resistance" (the ability to suppress the establishment and/or subsequent development of a parasite infection), and "resilience" (the ability to maintain relatively undepressed production while subjected to parasite challenge).
