Swine: Management void. Unit size no indication of parasite prevalence


, : Swine: Management void. Unit size no indication of parasite prevalence. Large Animal Veterinarian 45(1): 12-14

The importance of periodic faecal checks in pig herds is discussed. It is suggested that many practitioners and swine producers fail to realize that parasite larvae may cause more damage than the adult worm. Anthelmintic treatment regimen and cost and benefit analyses are given.
