Background Gastrointestinal nematodes that affect small ruminants are very important problems that affect adversely animal resources in Tropics and Sub-Saharan areas, hence increasing the margin of poverty, especially in rural communities. Objectives: The study was conducted to estimate the prevalence rate of gastrointestinal nematodes among dairy goats in the south Gezira locality during the period from November 2019 to April 2022.Material and Methods: Coprological examination was done by using flotation and culture technique methods. Results: 352 faecal samples were collected, and 212 samples were initiated positive for (GINs) with an overall prevalence of 60.2%. The study showed that there was a significant variation (P?0.05) of (GINs) infections in dairy goats according to sex, age, body condition, and season. Conclusions and Recommendations: The study concluded that (GINs) infection is highly prevalent in the tested areas of the locality and therefore, the study abstracted that, Haemonchus spp is the most predominant parasite identified. More studies must be conducted to study the (GINs) at molecular intensity using candidate anthelmintic resistance associated with gene expression and sequence polymorphisms.
