Abstract

[en] Gastrointestinal (GI) parasite infections (nematodes, protozoa) represent a serious problem in small ruminant production. This issue is currently potentiated by anthelmintic resistance. Thus, the need for more sustainable control alternatives increased. The use of bioactive forages with condensed tannins (CT) has shown encouraging results. The local Mexican plant Guazuma ulmifolia is cited in ethnoveterinary studies and naturally selected by sheep (pelibuey breed). Guazuma ulmifolia contains a certain amount of CTs. Therefore the objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of G. ulmifolia in sheep diet on animal performance and GI parasites. Twenty-two sheep were randomly distributed in two groups: a control group without G. ulmifolia and a group receiving a diet which contained G. ulmifolia fresh foliage at 30% of the dry matter of the total diet. For thirty days, weight, body condition and GI parasite load were assessed. The results showed no significant anthelmintic and anticoccidials effects (p > 0.05) as well as no significant impact on weight during the thirty days experiment. Nevertheless, considering the bromatological analysis of G. ulmifolia, its use as a supplement on diet in order to adjust protein and calcium deficits of poor quality diet is justified.
