Birdsfoot Trefoil for Parasite Control

High-tannin forages can be used to help mitigate the serious limitations associated with gastrointestinal nematode (GIN) infections on efficient small ruminant production.

Research conducted at West Virginia University showed that grazing a high-tannin cultivar of birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.) had both therapeutic and preventative effects on Haemonchus contortus infections in lambs and could be used in a systems approach to control GIN parasites in grazing sheep.
