Intestinal nematode worms are a potential danger for young stock on all cattle farms. In spite of the knowledge of the life cycles of these parasites and the availability of anthelmintics there is a considerable loss because often the disease is diagnosed and treated too late (Kloosterman et al., 1981; Michel et al., 1981). For this reason it is very important to develop preventive measures to keep the level of worm infestation on a farm at a low and harmless level.
