Strategies for Coping with Parasite Larvae on Pastures in the Springtime in Ohio
Contrary to what many people think, the infective larval forms of many internal parasites of sheep and goats can survive surprisingly well through cold winters on typical pastures in Ohio.
In "Strategies for Coping with Parasite Larvae on Pastures in the Springtime in Ohio," William Shulaw, Rory Lewandowski, Jeff McCutcheon, and Joyce Foster present alternative strategies incorporating newer concepts of parasite control that may be sustainable with less potential for resistant worm selection.
