Sustainable Parasite Control in Small Ruminants

  title={Sustainable Parasite Control in Small Ruminants},
  author={S Fiona Barker and M N Alam},
With its economy traditionally based on agriculture, India is a great source of genetic biodiversity in plants and animals. Vastly different agroclimatic and socioeconomic conditions result in a wide geographic distribution of livestock in an ecosystem providing functional sustenance to man. Among livestock, small ruminants are reared by the poorest sections of rural populations with very small holdings. While the sheep population has remained fairly static over the years, the goat population… CONTINUE READING
