From December 1998 to April 2000, a longitudinal study was conducted of the pooled trematode faecal egg counts of samples collected from goats of resource-poor farmers at Rust de Winter, Gauteng Province, Impendle, KwaZulu-Natal Province, and Kraaipan, North-West Province, South Africa. The amphistome faecal egg counts followed a seasonal pattern, with an increase in the counts during the warmer months of the year (October to March). This is the first work concerning the seasonal cycling of amphistomes in ruminants in South Africa.
