Abstract

The improvement of pastures by liming and reseeding raises their Mo and S concentrations, induces hypocuprosis in the lamb, and increases susceptibility to microbial but not nematode infection (1). The poor supply of Cu from the digesta to the host might also harm the parasites sharing the same nutrients. The effects of dietary Mo on the development of Trichostrongylus vitrinus (T.v.) were therefore investigated.
