Part 2 of a six part series on Worm Control in Goats
This article develops understanding of the biology of the worm, how sheep and goats become infected and using that knowledge to develop management practices to help control the worm.
While this article is targeted to the Barber pole worm (Haemonchus contortus), the most economically important worm of sheep and goats, most principles apply to the other major roundworm of goats and sheep, the Bankrupt worm or Black scour worm (Trichostrongylus colubriformis).
