The aim of this work is to study the genetic resistance of the Barbarine sheep to GIN infestation. This is a preliminary paper about the phenotypic measurements that were collected and compiled in a single phenotype database. Parasitological indicators were calculated and some risk factors were analysed. Correlations between haematological parameters and coproscopic results were also analysed.
