Organic livestock production has increased dramatically in recent years in Europe and other parts of the world. The aim of producing livestock under more natural conditions has led to a reversion to primarily outdoor production systems and less intensive housing when indoor, more forage-based diets, and a reduced reliance on external inputs like antiparasiticides. These major changes in livestock production systems may potentially result in re-emergence (or emergence) of parasitic infections… 
Parasite control in organic cattle farming: Management and farmers' perspectives from six European countries.
Alternative approaches to control of parasites in livestock: Nordic and Baltic perspectives
TLDR
This paper deals with practices or interventions that can be actively applied by farmers aiming specifically at control of mainly helminth infections, either by reducing the parasite infrapopulations directly, e.g. by means of antiparasitic crops, or by limiting the uptake of external stages.

Trace Minerals and Livestock: Not Too Much Not Too Little
TLDR
This papers focuses on different aspects that will help to enter a critical dialogue in relation to animal-human-environment and trace mineral nutrition.

TLDR
The study shows that more than half of the farms were positive for A. suum and coccidia oocysts, but mainly for younger females, and in general, sows with up to two parturitions and small farms showed a higher endoparasites percentage.
The effect of a diet with fructan-rich chicory roots on intestinal helminths and microbiota with special focus on Bifidobacteria and Campylobacter in piglets around weaning.
TLDR
It was not possible to assess the effect of chicory on post-weaning diarrhoea as it did not develop, but feeding piglets chicory may serve as an animal-friendly strategy to control pathogens.

Identification of Macracanthorhynchus hirudinaceus, Stephanurus dentatus and Trichuris suis in Native Pigs on Marajó Island
TLDR
It can be inferred that free-range pigs on Marajo Island are susceptible to helminths, reflecting the high degree of environmental contamination in which these animals are reared, and that such ecosystems can function as reservoirs of these agents.

Carcass quality in certified organic production compared with conventional livestock production.
TLDR
The carcass evaluation of swine shows a higher meat percentage in conventional swine production, and cattle from organic herds gave higher classification in the EUROP system, whereas the fat content was lower than that of conventionally reared cattle.

Seasonal variation in development and survival of Ascaris suum and Trichuris suis eggs on pastures.
TLDR
How knowledge on egg development and survival may be used in the planning of pasture strategies for control of helminth infections in outdoor pigs is discussed.
Effects of short-term exposure to condensed tannins on adult Trichostrongylus colubriformis
TLDR
In the treated sheep the worm burdens and number of eggs per gram faeces per worm were reduced by 30 per cent compared with the controls, but the sex ratios, the number of Eggs in utero and length of the worms were not affected by drenching with tannin.
Growth and gastrointestinal nematode parasitism in lambs grazing either lucerne (Medicago sativa) or sulla (Hedysarum coronarium) which contains condensed tannins
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the performance of lambs infected with nematode parasites can vary substantially when given feeds of a similar chemical composition.
