The dangers of having infected cattle:
Beef cattle infected with liver fluke can suffer from weight gain reductions of between 0.5 - 1.6 kg per week. This makes the prevention of liver fluke a very high priority to the farmer.
Another factor that can negatively effect cattles' performance is ectoparasites. Cattle infected with lice will become irritated, which can cause a loss of appetite. Studies have shown that infected cattles' food intake can reduce by up to 20%
One of the highest contributors to productivity loss in cattle is worm burdens. Worms will not only cause poor health for the cattle but can also cause high costs for the farmer.
