The coproculture study on strongyle infection of goats was carried out from slaughter house of Mhow, Madhya Pradesh during the period from Nov. 2015 to March 2016. Out of a total of 200 samples, 130 were found positive for strongyle with an overall prevalence rate of 65% Strongyle positive faecal samples were separately pooled and subjected to coproculture. Thus, larvae obtained were identified up to the level of genera. Upon coproculture of those faecal samples found positive for strongyle type, seven genera of parasites were recognized. Haemonchussp. (32.33%) was the predominant gastrointestinal nematode followed by Oesophagostomumsp. (22.51%), Trichostrongylus sp. (18.67%), Cooperiasp. (15.03%), Nematodirussp. (12.65%), Ostertagia sp. (3.34%) and Bunostomumsp. (3.12%). Haemonchus was the most common type of strongyle encountered in 32.33% goats, while Bunostomum was the least recovered from 3.12% goats. The ﬁnding of this examination shows that strongyle disease is one of the real issues that could hamper wellbeing and efficiency and there is requirement for outline a program to limit and control strongyle contamination in goats in the study area.
