Mean faecal egg counts (FEC), FAMACHA scores (FAM, score ranging from 1 [red conjunctiva] to 5 [white conjunctiva]) and packed cell volumes (PCV) determined on all goats in 20 herds in early summer and autumn. ALP = Alpine, SAA = Saanen, SD = standard deviation, na = not analysed. Haemonchus contortus percentage (H.c.%) was determined on a herd basis. Deviations in animal numbers between the early summer and autumn sampling are due to deaths and/or acquisition/selling of animals.
