Abstract

The following report summarises the measures to be implemented to control helmintic infections in intensive cattle breeding units in order to reduce economic losses resulting from sub-clinical infections. The various systems of cattle-management are reviewed and various types of infections in these systems are considered. Control is then considered chiefly emphasising the measures to be taken in herds which alternate between housing and grazing periods. Finally, the necessity of integrated control is stressed and the economic benefits from implementing control are discussed.
