Abstract

ONLY one other attempt has apparently been made in recent years to ascertain the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites in Eastern Nigerian livestock. This was made in 1957 by R. M. MacKenzie1,2. The remaining records of this work are incomplete, but indicate that only a few animals were sampled. One of us (J. W. A.) felt that before sound recommendations for parasite control could be made to the expanding Nigerian livestock industry, a more complete survey of the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites in domestic livestock was needed.
