Abstract / samenvatting in Nederlands:

Leverbotinfecties zijn in toenemende mate een knelpunt bij melkgevende koeien die weiden of vers gras op stal gevoerd krijgen. Leverbotinfecties brengen verliezen met zich mee die onderschat worden, zoals verminderde groei van jongvee, verminderde weerstand, verminderde melkproductie en afkeuring van levers van geslachte dieren.

Title in English: Liver fluke disease: prevalence in the Netherlands

Abstract / summary in English:

Dairy cows grazing outside, or fed indoors with fresh grass, are increasingly infected by liver fluke, a parasitic flatworm. Losses resulting from liver fluke disease are generally underestimated, but include growth retardation, reduced resistance, lower milk production, and rejection of infected livers at the slaughterhouse.
