The point prevalence of gastro-intestinal parasites in calves, sheep and goats in Magadi division, south-western Kenya



The point prevalence of gastro-intestinal parasites in calves, sheep and goats in Magadi division, south-western Kenya



Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research 71(4): 257-261



Helminths cause great economic loss in livestock in Africa, and can be categorized as either direct or indirect losses. Arid and semi-arid lands (ASAL) in Kenya comprise 71% of total land area and harbour the largest population of cattle, sheep and goats. However, little information on the distribution and impact of gastro-intestinal (GIT) parasitism in these animals is available.
