Objective: This study was carried out to detect the presence and prevalence of helminths in cattle between March 2011-June 2012 in the Bartin and Amasra districts.


Methods: A total of 141 feacal samples of cattle younger than 1 year old (n=12), between 1 and 3 years old (n=48), more than 3 years old (n=81) were analyzed with sedimentation, flotation and Baermann Wetzel methods. Strongylid eggs in feaces were cultured and the larvae were then collected and identified.


Results: Of 141 cattle examined, 104 (73.75%) were obseved to be infected with various helminths. The ratio of infection was 66.67% in the under 1 year old, 93.75% in 1-3 year old and 62.96% in over 3 year old cattle and 73.68% in female and 74.07% male. 68.4% of Holstein, 91.67% of Simental and 75% of domestic cattle were found to be infected with various helminths.


Conclusion: The helminth infection of cattle in the Bartin province is a problem that should not be ignored. Breeders should informed about this subject and necessary measures should be taken.
