Abstract: The present study aimed to identify Eimeria species in young and adult sheep raised under intensive and / or semiintensive systems of a herd from Umuarama city, Parana State, Brazil using the traditional diagnostic methods and to correlate the infection level/types of infection in the different

“…In our study, lambs were found to be more infected by Eimeria species than adults and older animals. This is in line with the reports of Radostits et al (9), Ayana et al (4), Khan et al (10), and Lopes et al (29), who stated that lambs are more susceptible than ewes or yearlings. Similarly, Nourollahi-Fard et al (7) encountered a higher prevalence of Eimeria infection in lambs than in yearlings and adults.…”

“…Similarly, Yakhchali and Golami (8) reported sex influences the prevalence of ovine coccidiosis. This might be ascribed to sex-related factors, such as the physiological stress experienced by female animals in relation to pregnancy; giving birth and lactation could also cause female animals to be more susceptible to Eimeria infections (24,29).…”

“…in sheep younger than 2 years was obtained. This finding complies with those reported in previous works [34,35] and can be strongly linked by the age-related development of immunity against this parasite. The possible acquired immunity against parasites by older animals has been experimentally demonstrated [36].…”

“…To better understand the degree of Eimeria infection in the different categories (age) and aptitude (milk or beef cattle), the results of the OoPG counts were subdivided into scales of values, according to recommendations made by Lopes et al (2013), adapted, and will be presented in the Tables 1 an 4 of the present manuscript.…”
