Grazing cattle face the risk of parasitic gastroenteritis and husk in the autumn. The magnitude of the risk depends on factors such as weather, grazing management, strategic use of anthelmintics and lungworm vaccination over the preceding months. Monitoring and vigilance are key components of helminth control in the autumn and, irrespective of conditions, effective anthelmintic treatment of cattle, especially youngstock, at housing can mitigate many of the adverse effects of parasites over winter.
