Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to assess the seasonal influence on the occurrence of gastrointestinal nematode diseases in an organized farm of Wayanad district of Kerala.  Strongylosis was the most predominant gastrointestinal nematode followed by trichurosis and amphistomosis. Haemonchosis was the predominant strongyle infection in the farm.  The first peak of eggs (strongyle) per gram of faeces (EPG) in adult goats was observed during the month of April. In kids, the first peak of EPG was observed during the period January- February.  The second peak of EPG for strongyle worms in adult goats and kids occurred during October.
