Abstract

Investigation on the influence of season on the prevalence of helminthic infection among cattle and buffaloes indicated that the over all prevalence of parasitic infection was 336 (42.0%) out of 800 faecal samples. The highest incidence was observed by amphistomes 180 (22.5%) followed by coccidia 65 (8.1%), strongyles 61 (7.6%) and fasciola 30 (3.8%). The incidence of parasitic infection was higher in monsoon season as compared to that of summer and winter
