Abstract

Eight hundred and seventy on goats from Naikhongchari FSR site in Bandarban district were examined for gastro-intestinal nematodes. The parasites encountered in the region were Haemonchus Sp, Bunostomum Sp, Oesophagostomum Sp and Strongyloides Sp. The overall infection rate was 78.41%. Among various species found. Haemonchus Sp emerged as the most prevalent, although Oesophagostomum and Bunostomum were also found in this studies. The seasonal fluctuation in infection was assessed by monitoring the fecal egg count. The maximum values for the prevalence and overall mean EPG were observed after the heavy rain fall season and remained at a relatively high level from June to November. Haemonchus Sp and Oesophagostomum Sp appeared to be of major important parasites in the goats of this climatic zone which deserved proper treatment to attain higher production from goat.
