Impact of improved host resistance on worm control in Merinos - a computer simulation study
Eady, S.J., Dobson, R.J. and Barnes, E.H. (1997) Impact of improved host resistance on worm control in Merinos - a computer simulation study. In: Fourth international congress for sheep veterinarians, 2 - 6 February, Armidale, New South Wales, Australia pp. 341-345.
The WW model has been used to examine the epidemiological consequences of having a flock of resistant lambs as a result of either selective breeding or vaccination. However, these simulations started with "resistant" sheep rather than simulating the gradual change in immune response that would occur over a number of years in a breeding program.
