The results of a questionnaire circulated in 1984 concerning parasitic worm control on cattle and sheep farms in a veterinary practice in the west of Scotland are reported. Control by grazing management or anthelmintic treatment was used in 92 per cent of the cattle herds and in all the sheep flocks. The use of anthelmintic drugs was greatest on farms where grazing control was also practised. Benzimidazoles were the most frequently used anthelmintic drugs.
