Prevention of Stomach Parasites in Cattle
Livestock are not provided with medicines for stomach worms or internal parasites due to lack of awareness. This results in weakening of the animals as well as causing financial loss in the animal husbandry.
Worms in the stomach of the cattle are one of the biggest issues. It will also be profitable for animal husbandry, if the cattle are given the deworming medicines. In the case of stomach worms in cattle, worms consume 30% to 40% of the food; this can be minimized with the help of the right medicines.
