How to prevent parasite or worm infections in horses
The transmission of parasites can be partially controlled by managing the environment in order to limit the development of eggs and larvae and the exposure of horses to these infective stages.
The following strategies can help in controlling worm populations:
Limit the density of horses (animals per acre) to prevent overgrazing and reduce pasture contamination.
Pick up and dispose of manure regularly.
Compost manure away from the pasture.
Consider rotating pastures with another species (cattle, sheep) to interrupt the life cycle of equine parasites.
Use a feeder for hay and grain rather than feeding on the ground.
Remove bot eggs from horses’ hair coat.
