Summary

It has been shown that carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion in the small intestine but fermentable in the caecum and colon (prebiotics) may be adverse to Oesophagostomum detatum establishment in pigs and have a severe negative effect on egg production. However, there is some evidence that O.dentatum may adapt to the presence of chicory in the feed over time, and is Thus very relevant to examine the long-term effect on the parasite.
