Economics dairy liver fluke modelling GIS animal health nematodes
Project description

The aims of this project are 1) to develop a stochastic model to estimate the economic effects of different anthelmintic treatment strategies; 2) the identification of areas and herds at risk for infections with gastrointestinal nematodes and liver fluke with a geographic information system and 3) the evaluation of non-invasive decision parameters for selective anthelmintic treatment.
