A model is presented which enables genetic relationships between productivity and resistance to nematode infection in lambs to be modelled, and epidemiological effects arising from the host genotype to be quantified. Moderate, favourable relationships between resistance and productivity are predicted, with the disease epidemiology affecting these relationships as well as responses to selection
