Abstract:

An experimental study on strategic treatment of bovine fascioliasis was conducted on 180 white Fulani x Friesians cross of various ages and sex. All the animals are on semi intensive management system. The animals were divided into 3 groups of 60 lactating, 60 dry cows and 60 young stocks (heifers and bulls). All animal in farm were screened for fascioliasis. The lactating animals and the young stock were treated with Ivomec super® at a dose rate of 1 mL/50 kg body weight at the beginning of the dry season (December) while the dry cows were excluded. 20 faecal samples were collected randomly from each group every end of the month throughout the dry season (December-April respectively) and analyzed by sedimentation technique for Fasciola egg(s). None of the treated animals were positive at the end of December to April. 16, 19, 24, 26, 29% of dry animals were positive for Fasciola eggs throughout the experimental period (December-April). In conclusion, a single injection of Ivomec super® administered in mid-December may be used as a protocol to effectively control the incidence of bovine fascioliasis in the tropic.
