Malaysia has a total population of about 700,000 heads of sheep and goats  mainly in commercial farms as well as bred in smallholder enterprises.  As a tropical country with hot wet climate, it is the perfect environment for parasitic diseases, most commonly helminthiasis, to infect these animals.  Since the 1980’s, there has been a steady increase in mortalities caused by helminthiasis which has led to the increase in use of anthelmintics till today.  The government farms which posed as breeding stations for small ruminant production were severly affected by helminth infections and stringent measures were undertaken  to prevent mortalities.
