Abstract The response of Awassi sheep and the local breed of Iraqi goats to primary infection with a prevalent trichostrongylid nematode, Haemonchus contortus, was compared by examining their worm burden and the pathogenic effects of the parasite on these hosts following experimental infection. The results showed that the goats had lower worm burdens and had suffered less severe clinical and haematological disturbances than the Awassi sheep. The worm counts in sheep were higher than in goats but the count of the mucosal phase of the larvae was higher in goats. These differences are possibly immunologic in origin though a genetic resistance may operate, primarily at the level of worm establishment. The pathophysiological changes are correlated with parasitological and clinical observations in the two host species.
