Cattle showing symptoms of brown stomach worm are referred to as being affected by ‘ostertagiosis’. Other cattle worms present in WA are black scour worm (Trichostrongylus species), the thin-necked intestinal worm (Nematodirus species), hair worm (Cooperia oncophora) and the large bowel worm (Oesophagostomum radiatum).

“The two parasites with cow-calf operations we have to consider are Cooperia in the babies and Ostertagia in the mommies,” Craig says. So, in his mind, if the calves are old enough to benefit from an anthelmintic, treat the cows with a macrolide to help control pasture infestations of Ostertagia and the calves with a white drench to get.

There are two broad types of worms that can affect cattle: Gut worms (gastrointestinal)- three most important are: Ostertagia ostertagi, Trichostrongylus axei, Cooperia agia and live in the 4th stomach (abomasum) and Cooperia lives in the small intestine.

A range of gastrointestinal worms are commonly found in cattle, sheep and goats in Australia. The types of gastrointestinal worms present on a property can vary between regions, with some worms more suited to hot, humid conditions in northern Australia and others to cooler conditions in southern Australia.

Large numbers of worms in the intestine produce catarrhal enteritis with petechial and ecchymosis, especially in the duodenum and jejunum.

Adult worms graze the lining or mucosa and cause irritation and fluid loss, interfering with the digestive function of the stomach.

Types of tripe Beef tripe. Beef tripe is made from the muscle wall (the interior mucosal lining is removed) of only the first three chambers of a cow's stomach: the rumen (blanket/flat/smooth tripe), the reticulum (honeycomb and pocket tripe), and the omasum (book/bible/leaf tripe).

It causes weight loss and scouring in weaners in late winter. • In spring, calving herds drench at weaning, and again in July, followed by a move to ‘worm-safe’ pasture.

•Routine drenching of mature beef cattle is not required. AG Ostertagia in Cattle. The main roundworm of cattle is Ostertagia ostertagi, known commonly as the brown stomach worm.

Gut Worms (Parasitic Gastroenteritis or PGE) Cause. Parasitic gastro-enteritis refers to the infection of the abomasum and the intestines. Once infection builds up, cattle become progressively ill-thriven, which has serious economic and welfare implications.

As the name suggests, the scours with these worms are a very dark colour.

Ruminant stomachs have four compartments: the rumen, the reticulum, the omasum and the abomasum. Rumen microbes ferment feed and produce volatile fatty acids, which is the cow’s main energy source.

Rumen microbes also produce B vitamins, vitamin K and amino acids. In calves, the esophageal grooves. Internal parasites (stomach and intestinal worms) rob cattle of nutrition, reducing growth and weight gains in young cattle and hindering optimum production in all classes of cattle.
