A total of 576 fatteners selected randomly from 6 Korean native goat farms in Chonnam area were examined for louse infestation from March 1997 to February 1998. The lice collected from the goats were identified. Four goat farms were selected and 20 goats were randomly chosen from each farm; blood samples were taken from the goats seasonally and examined hematologically and chemically. It was found that 495 out of 576 goats (85.9%) were infested with lice. The infestation rate in one of the 6 farms reached 92.9%. Two species of lice were identified; Linognathus sp. (sucking lice) and Bovicola sp. (biting lice). Goats infested with lice showed higher values in white blood cell, neutrophil and eosinophil counts than the goats not infested counterparts; same trend was seen with total protein, albumin and globulin concentrations. The results of this study indicate that louse infestation in the goat should be investigated extensively in view of the goat farming.
Key Words: Linognathus sp, Bovicola sp, Hematological values, Korean native goat
