, : The prevalence of gastrointestinal nematodes in cattle in tetu division of nyeri district kenya. Bulletin of Animal Health & Production in Africa 35(4): 294-297

Gastrointestinal nematodes of cattle were studied at their infective larval stage for a period of one year in Tetu Division of Nyeri District. They were recovered from pasture herbage in five different farms and the percentages of various genera present assessed. Faeces from three age groups of cattle were cultured and again the percentage of various genera present assessed. Results showed that the genera of cattle gastrointestinal nematodes present in the area of study were Cooperia, Trichostrongylus, Haemonchus, Oesophagostomum and Strongyloides in that order of prevalence.
