Coccidiosis, caused by protozoa of the Eimera species, is a disease of the gastrointestinal tract. Most cattle are infected with coccidia at some point in their lives, but in most cases the parasite does not cause clinical disease. Clinical signs tend to occur in animals that are heavily infested or if they have lowered immune defences due to stress, poor nutrition or concurrent disease.
