    BOOYSE, Dirk  y  DEHORITY, Burk A.. Rumen protozoa in South African sheep with a summary of the worldwide distribution of sheep protozoa. Onderstepoort j. vet. res. [online]. 2011, vol.78, n.1, pp. 1-7. ISSN 0030-2465.

    Protozoa species were identified in rumen contents of four domestic sheep (Ovis aries) from South Africa. All animals were fed a forage diet which consisted of 50% lucerne and 50% teff hay. Ten new host records were identified, bringing the total number of species and forms observed in sheep in South Africa to 30. The occurrence and geographic distribution of ciliate protozoa in both domestic and wild sheep from around the world are summarised. It was found that 15 genera and 131 species occur in domestic sheep globally.
