Haemonchlls contortlls is a major helminth parasitic infection found in goat. Anthelmintic resistance has emerged due to increase usage of the same drugs on goats. Therefore, nonanthelminthic alternatives are needed to reduce endoparasite as well as decrease the spreading of anthelmintic resistance. Few studies showed that goats which took organic feed had lower egg count of endoparasite. This project was performed to determine the ability of organic feed to control the gastrointestinal parasites infection in local goats. The faecal egg count reduction test was done on 16 goats sample located in Kuching Division. The egg was then counted under lOx magnification and tabulated. Results indicated that significant reduction of fecal egg of endoparasite in more than half of the goats sample after six weeks taking organic feed. Those achieved expected results is due to content of organic feed such as sago pulp, alfalfa and palm seed oil. Endoparasitic egg identified were hookworm, coccidian and strongyloides. However, genetic and environmental factors can also affect the results.
