Eighty-three 2-4-year-old intact male goats exposed to a combination of artificial and natural challenge were segregated into responders and non-responders by ranking of weekly faecal egg counts (FECs). Retrospective analysis of samples over a 15-week-period showed responders had a statistically lower mean FEC than non-responders. Estimates of repeatability between consecutive egg counts were significant in both groups. The 6 top responders and bottom non-responders were subsequently given an… CONTINUE READING
