This study aimed to characterize the cattle endoparasites control in Minas Gerais State. Questionnaires were applied in 1,304 farms and 1,289 were validated and used in this study. The farms were located at 555 municipalities inserted in 66 Minas Gerais micro-regions and were selected by random sampling. The interviewees were asked about socioeconomic profile, production characteristics and cattle sanitary management of each farm, and attitudes to control the endoparasites. Results showed that the parasites control practices recomemended to cattle are unknown to most of the farmers.
