seasonal incidence of helminths in sheep and goats in south mozambique.the seasonal fluctuations in faecal worm egg counts were studied at monthly intervals for over a year in 20 male sheep and goats on extensive grazing tracts at a farm near maputo, mozambique. larval differentiation from faecal cultures showed that haemonchus contortus and oesophagostomum columbianum were the most prevalent worm species. trichostrongylus colubriformis, cooperia spp., strongyloides papillosus, moniezia spp., paramphistomum spp. and trichuris spp. also occurred. after the onset of ...19826892176
the effect of double infections with trypanosomes and gastrointestinal nematodes on the productivity of sheep and goats in south mozambique.the effect of simultaneous infections with trypanosomes (trypanosoma vivax and trypanosoma congolense) and gastrointestinal nematodes on the productivity of sheep and goats was studied in 20 animals (6 male goats and 14 male sheep) at a farm near maputo. the animals were divided into 4 groups which received either treatment against gastrointestinal nematodes, or against trypanosomes, or treatment against both, or no treatment at all. in two-weekly and later in weekly intervals body weight, packe ...19826892177
