A survey was done between 1979 and 1981 of Fasciola, Paramphistomum, gastrointestinal nematodes and theileriosis in 397 cattle herds of the Dinka (315), Fellata (74) and unidentified (eight) peoples of southern Sudan. The apparent prevalences were below 51% for all herds. The local breed differences between the Dinka and Fellata cattle seemed to be due to their grazing locations and management systems and were the primary factors in describing the prevalences of the parasites. Proposed control strategies are outlined.
