Livestock/veterinary entomology is the evaluation and understanding of ectoparasites that bite and feed on livestock and companion animals, thus effecting the thriftiness, behavior, and lifestyle of the animals.
Insects are a major cause of mortality and reduced productivity in domestic livestock. The insects cause this damage directly by feeding on or parasitising livestock, or indirectly, by transmitting livestock diseases.
