It was found that during the previous 6 years there has been a large increase in the ...

Abstract

The tick resistance of cattle bred in central Queensland by inseminating Brahman cows with Charolais semen appeared to be slightly less than that of high-grade Brahman cattle, but their superior growth rate indicated that the cross-bred cattle retained a sufficient degree of resistance.
