External Parasites

There are a number of external parasites which can impact on goat health and production.    One of the most common of these are lice.   There are two types of lice affecting goats.   The “blue” or sucking lice that feed on the blood of the animal and four “red” species or biting lice that feed on the surface tissue and scurf.

The sucking lice will cross infect both goats and sheep.   The biting lice are breed specific.
