Abstract

The ability of fenbendazole slow release bolus (Panacur SR Bolus, Hoechst) to control gastrointestinal parasitism in calves during their first grazing season at pasture was evaluated in two field trials. The infection level on both investigated farms was low and the control animals did not develop parasitic gastroenteritis. However, it was possible to demonstrate significant differences in the parasitological and biochemical parameters between the control and treated groups during the grazing season. Faecal egg counts and blood pepsinogen levels in the control cattle at both trials sites were significantly higher than those of the bolus-treated cattle.
