Small animal producers in Europe can financially benefit if they sell not only carcasses or dissected cuts, but also processed meat and edible offal in value added products such as traditional and popular pâté. In particular, when introducing a new exotic species like eland ( Taurotragus oryx ) to the market, the sale of low valued cuts with higher...

INTRODUCTION Bovine cysticercosis as a zoonotic disease is spread in different regions across the globe and which affects both people and cattle. It is caused by the tapeworm Taenia saginata (T. saginata), whose final hosts are humans while cattle are the most common intermediate host. The cattle are infected by swallowing tapeworm eggs from human...
