Results: In the published studies, administration of D. flagrans spores resulted in statistically-significant improvements in a wide variety of parasitological parameters:-
Goats: Large reductions in infective larvae on pasture were demonstrated, including their “virtual elimination” in the trials of Sanyal et al. (2002). Reduced infection levels were demonstrated by reductions in epg of grazing animals (58% reduction reported by Epe et al., 2009) and reductions in total worm counts of tracer animals of up to 87% (Vilela et al., 2012). Similarly, parasitosis was prevented (Vilela et al., 2012) and the number of worming treatments required was reduced (Maingi et al., 2006 and Vilela et al., 2012). In addition, reduction of larval emergence from coproculture of up to 99.5% was reported (Paraud et al., 2007).
Did you know: Trials with Duddingtonia flagrans have shown significant parasitic nematode reductions on pasture of grazing species like sheep, goats, cattle and horses
