Internal Parasite Control in Beef Cattle (B 1086) University of Georgia Extension Internal parasites can cause significant production losses in cattle, resulting in substantial economic losses for owners. Often, parasite losses are subclinical and unnoticed but severe infestations can cause disease and even death. Subclinical production losses caused by internal parasites include reduced milk production, reduced weaning weights, delayed puberty and decreased fertility in replacement heifers, reduced pregnancy rates in mature cows, and reduced feed intake, reduced feed efficiency and immune suppression in all classes of cattle. This publication contains information on controlling internal parasites in beef cattle. 2016-11-07 10:38:58.017 2006-06-02 14:27:12.0 Internal Parasite Control in Beef Cattle | Publications | UGA Extension Skip to content
