Internal parasites can be a major problem for producers. With parasites developing resistance to all dewormers and more farmers producing livestock by 'natural' methods, there is interest in looking for alternative ways to managing parasite problems. This ATTRA (1999) publication covers aspects of the whole system affecting internal parasites, including nutrition, pasture management, soil organisms, and strategic deworming.
