According to "Liver Fluke - the Facts", a paper published by Animal Health Ireland (AHI), liver fluke costs the worldwide livestock and food industries an estimated €2.5 million per year. These financial losses associated with liver fluke are mainly due to a reduction in the amount of milk and meat produced. Liver fluke can cause a loss of up to 20% in cattle, 30% in sheep and a loss of up to 8% in the milk production of dairy cows.
Identifying infected cattle:
It can sometimes be hard to see the signs of fluke in infected cattle and a slight decline in the performance of the herd can be hard to associate to a single factor. Yet liver fluke affects at least 50% of all Irish herds. The following lists will show some of the common signs that your herd has been infected by liver fluke.
In Young Stock
Reduced weight at the time of weaning caused by both the poor quality and quantity of the milk being produced
Poor feed conversion
On occasion anaemia, loss of weight and even death in animals younger than 2 years old.
In Breeding Stock
Weakened or incapacitated cows, especially in later stages of pregnancy.
Lower fertility rates which leads to an increase in culls
