    Uittreksel

    Global agriculture will be required to intensify production
    from a shrinking natural resource base. Helminth
    infections of ruminants are a major constraint on efficient
    livestock production. The current challenge is to
    develop diagnostic methods that detect the production
    impact of helminth infections on farms in order to target
    control measures and contribute to the global challenge
    of preserving food security. We review here our understanding
    of the effects of helminth infections and control
    practices on productivity and the diagnostic tools that
    can inform on this. By combining advances in helminth
    laboratory diagnostics and animal health economics,
    sustainable management of helminth infections can be
    integrated into the whole-farm economic context.
