The establishment, composition and severity of infection of gastro-intestinal parasites and their impact on productivity of Tswana kids in southern Botswana


The establishment, composition and severity of infection of gastro-intestinal parasites and their impact on productivity of Tswana kids in southern Botswana



Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research 68(1): 71-74



ISSN/ISBN: 0030-2465

PMID: 11403433

The presence of gastrointestinal parasites in Tswana kids (n = 7) aged 1-3 weeks was studied for a period of 6 months at the Botswana College of Agriculture. The aims of this study were to find the time when they first contracted internal parasite infections, and to determine the severity of the infections and also its relation to production indicators (body mass and packed cell volume) of the kids as they grew older.
