A preliminary investigation into the control of trichostrongylosis in calves in Kenya


, : A preliminary investigation into the control of trichostrongylosis in calves in Kenya. Tropical Animal Health and Production 11(2): 71-83

A series of 3 grazing experiments was carried out to collect data relevant for designing techniques to prevent trichostrongylosis in dairy calves in Kenya. In the first experiment 1 week in/5 weeks out rotation was compared with set stocking. The results indicated that rotation is not an effective control measure. In the second experiment the effects of daily removal of faeces from the field were investigated. This practice also had a limited effect in controlling nematode infection in calves. The third experiment concentrated on the influence of nutrition level. It was shown that feeding level does affect the growth rate but its effect on the course of the egg output was not clear-cut. The results also indicated that the dry season greatly reduces herbage infestation.
