Before I begin, I'd like to thank Holly Jentsch of C&H Livestock and Vickie McGaugh for contributing many of the needed files, resources and references for this article - which is not really an article, but more or less a chart that should assist you in identifying those pesky internal parasites. I really do not think that this chart is quite yet complete as there are perhaps thousands (if not more) of species of parasites. However, these should give you a good idea of the more common, problematic parasites many ranchers are dealing with regularly. Good hunting.
