Abstract

Fecal samples were taken from 39 Eurytrema sp naturally infected cattle in order to determinate the egg count per gram of faeces. The results showed that the method employed has 94.2% of probability to detected natural cases of infection with only one examination and this value is not related to the parasite load. Besides, it was proved that the number of eggs per gram of faeces in Eurytrema sp naturally infected cattle has low counts and follows a binomial negative frequency distribution model.
