Data on distribution of coenurosis in sheep, its economic damage and dеvelopment of vaccine against this disease are submitted. Coenurosis is being registered yearly in 5–12 % of sheep in sheep farms. In sheep farms each sheep produces yearly 2–3 kg less wool,  15–20 kg less meet products. About 5 % of lambs die annually from coenurosis. While the average price for a lamb is 3 thousand roubles the total damage is more than 3 billion roubles.  Economic losses can be reduced by hundreds of times due to implementation of vaccine against coenurosis. According to the results of immunization of sheep with vaccine developed by authors the number of infected sheep has been reduced by 10 times in the first year, in the second year – up to 0,5–0,01 %, in the third year – the vaccine hasn't been used.

Keywords: coenurosis, damage, vaccine, lambs.
