Abstract A 2 months old suckling calf had complaints of diarrhea and roundworms near the perineum. Faecal examination showed the presence of a high number of roundworm eggs of roxocara vitulorum. The calf was a daughter of a Piemontese cow, born on the farm, but with a grandmother imported from France. This case describes the measures taken on the farm to prevent clinical problems and dissemination of the infection to other farms.
