Abstract
The economic importance of hydatidosis in Kenyan livestock has been recognized particularly in cattle, sheep and goats (Ginsberg, 1958and Nelson and Rausch, 1963) and also in man (AM REF, 1977-1980; Okelo and Kyobe, 1981, and Okelo, 1984). The extent of this parasite in Kenya has not been adequately studied. Ginsberg (1956 and 1958) and Froyd (1959) Reported differences in intensity of infection between African owned and European owned Cattle with less infection rate in the latter. However geographical differences in infection Rates of livestock have been reported and Nelson and Rausch (1963), gingled out West Pokot and Masa land where cattle and sheep were heavily infested with hydatids.
