Trichostrongylid Nematode Infections Associated with the Handling of Cattle Slurry — a Survey of Danish Studies
The application of cattle slurry to pastures may lead to raised herbage contamination with trichostrongyle larvae and subsequent parasitism in grazing animals. The liquid manure handling may lead to variable and unforeseeable epidemiological events, and even permanently housed animals may be exposed to infection. Precautions suggested for minimising the parasitological hazards are discussed, including the possible role of the biogas process in decontaminating slurry.
