Summary

A diarrhoea score was tested in lambs in organic flocks of semi-mountains regions in centre France. This score was related to the various internal parasites along the grazing season (Coccidia, then Moniezia and Strongyles, then Nematodirus and finally Strongyloides). It can be used on an individual basis for treatment decision or to monitor the internal parasitism of the flock. It should be evaluated in different climatic regions and coul be tested also in conventional farms.
