Annual Fecal Egg Count (FEC) for horses whose owners know their egg shedding record or have completed the Fecal Egg Count Program This once a year FEC uses evidence to ensure that everything is going to plan with their worm control program and is usually combined with a Fecal Egg Count Wormer Program.
Egg shedding characteristics of horses is stable over time, when it is otherwise in good health, pasture management practices are sound, and the horse has not recently moved from one property to another.
So, a healthy paddocked horse with a record of low egg shedding/FEC will tend to always have a low FEC, while a high egg shedder/FEC horse will tend to always have a high FEC (Nielsen et al., 2006; Becher et al., 2010).
