Abstract

On a global scale, gastrointestinal helminthosis is the farm animal disease with the greatest impact upon world poverty (Perry et al., 2001). Anthelmintic drugs have long been the main protection against helminth parasites, but this approach is no longer sustainable due to the development of anthelmintic resistance by parasites. Therefore, alternative methods for controlling helminth parasites in sheep have been the focus of much research. These include improved nutrition and breeding for resistance to nematodes
