Infection of ruminants with ruminant fasciolosis is a serious problem in animal production, especially in Indonesia. Fasciola gigantica, also known as liver trematode, is an endemic parasitic species with a high infection rate in Malang district. During Eid Qurban 2019, the investigation was conducted to determine the prevalence of fascioliasis in Malang District, East Java. 68 cutting points in 9 sub-districts were used to collect data. A total of 265 cows, 895 goats, and 112 sheep were examined, with the focus on age, origin, body condition, and post-mortem anomalies from the questioners. In the Gondanglegi sub-district, the prevalence of fasciolosis was higher in cattle (57%) than goat (18%). Meanwhile, sheep in Wajak were completely afflicted with fasciolosis. Overall, Malang District given 86 percent of fasciolosis in cattle with good body conditions. Malang District was also responsible for 82 percent of infected goats and 78 percent of infected sheep. Adult cattle (2-3 years) had 53 percent abnormal livers, adult goats and sheep (1-1,5 years) had 78 percent and 89 percent abnormal livers, respectively. Fasciolosis infections are more resistant in adult livestock. The Malang district’s control of fasciolosis infections in large and small animals needs to be improved. The faecal egg analysis should be carried out in endemic areas to better understand fascioliasis distributions and monitor the disease by educating people about the disease’s public health implications.
