Abstract
Worms are perhaps the most common. parasites that live in' the stomachs, intestines and other organs of livestock and draw nourishment from the food taken by the animal. They take in food often in the [,;If'1 of blood, digested food or body tissues, depriving the animal necessary nutrients in the process. This leads to delayed growth and unthriftiness and as a result of poor feed conversion or absorption, the animal tends to eat more than necessary without fattening or increase in milk production. Common worms of economic importance in Kenya fall into three main groups namely: Round",worms; Flukes and Tape,worms.
