A total of 1080 goat faecal samples were examined from six villages of three districts (Charkhi dadri, Bhiwani and Mahindergarh) in aeolian plains of Haryana, of which 988 (91.50%) were positive for helminthic infections. The various helminth parasites observed were strongyles (89.81%), Strongyloides spp. (37.04%), Trichuris spp. (11.67%) and Moniezia spp. (3.15 %). Infection was significantly higher in adults (92.90%) as compared to young animals (80.8%). Significantly higher (p<0.05) infection rate was observed in monsoon (98.9%) as compared to winter (86.7%), spring (87.8%) and summer (92.6%) season. A non-significant difference was observed between male and female for gastrointestinal parasites in the study area. Coproculture studies revealed Haemonchus contortus (86-94%) as predominant parasite during all the seasons, followed by Strongyloides spp. (1-8%), Trichostrongylus spp. (2-5%) and Oesophagostomum spp (1%).
