Introduction: Livestock farming is a vulnerable area for the transmission of zoonotic diseases. Good cage management affects the health of livestock and workers. Furthermore, clean and healthy farm conditions help to maintain the health of the people living around the farm. This study was centered on the early detection of worm infections in livestock.

Methods: This exploratory study was conducted on a village farm containing 52 cows with 20 workers. Helminthiasis screening was performed with the saturated NaCl flotation technique via laboratory testing.

Results: It was found that one cow was infected with hookworm, and all the workers were in healthy condition.

Conclusion: Transmission of ancylostomiasis can be prevented by maintaining cage sanitation and worker hygiene behavior.
