The article reports on the study that explored the characteristics the anthelmintic resistance status of a goat farm. It showed that Teladorsagia circumcincta worms were highly resistance to levamisole and fenbendazole. It is suggested that resistance to macrocyclic lactones was not described in goats in France, however, the high prevalence of benzimidazole resistance has led goat owners to use the macrocyclic lactones widely.
