Abstract

The large roundworm (Ascaris lumbrico ides) is the only one of the 16 known worm parasites of pigs that has any serious effects upon the pig industry in this State. This parasite is widely spread in most of the areas where pig-raising is practised, and is the cause of much of the stunted growth seen in young pigs, as well as some deaths.
