The influence of various factors on the level of strongyloid infection and worm-egg output of goats in Uganda was assessed. Faecal examination of 1661 goats was carried out in four different agroclimatic zones in Uganda between November 1996 and August 1997. Generally, grazing system, season and agroclimatic zone were the only factors found to have a significant (P<0.001) influence on the intensity of gastrointestinal nematode infections in goats, but age did not. Age, grazing system, season… CONTINUE READING
