BIANCHIN, Ivo e CATTO, João Batista. Dehydrated garlic (Allium sativum L.) in the control of gastro-intestinal nematodes in naturally infected bovines. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2004, vol.34, n.4, pp. 1267-1270. ISSN 0103-8478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782004000400052.
During 74 days, three groups of six Nelore weaned heifers, with natural mixing infections of gastro-intestinal nematodes, were housed separately and treated with 20, 10 and 0g animal-1 day-1 of dehydrated garlic added the ration. During all the experimental period no statistical difference (P>0.05) between treated and control groups was observed in egg per gram of faeces (EPG) and in relative percentage of infective larvae in the larval cultures.
