It was observed that mixed worm loads could be represented as composite strongyloid worm units", and that significant regressions could be shown between the strongyloid faecel egg counts and the strongyloid worm units. The main object of the present investigation W3JS to assess the nutritional status of sheep and goats in relation to strongloid faecal egg counts, worm burdens, and climatological backgrounds. From these derminations,deductions were made with a view to securing a measure of economic development within the livestock industry.
