ABSTRACT
During two years, the infestation of infecting larvae on grazing grass and the level of gastrointestinal nematodes in beef cattle, in the region of the Brazilian Cerrado, were monitored. In the first study, parasitological variables were investigated on pasture of Panicum maximum cv Mombaça, under continuous or rotational grazing, with four (36 resting days and 12 occupation days) and ten paddocks (36 resting days and 4 occupation days). In the second study, these variables were evaluated with different forage species (Panicum maximum cv Mombaça, Braquiaria brizantha cv Marandu and Cynodon spp). (Tifton 85), under rotational grazing on eight paddocks (28 resting days and 4 occupation days). In the first study, and only in the first year, the infestation of pasture with infecting larvae was lower (P
