Abstract

The effects of bi-monthly dipping with Promacyl [3-methyl-5-(1-methylethyl)phenyl methyl(1-oxobutyl)carbamate] and no dipping on tick (Boophilus microplus (Can.)) numbers and liveweight gain of young Bos indicus × B. taurus cattle grazing tick-infested improved pastures were compared in 3...

The results are presented of 2 field trials in Queensland in 1978-80 in which cattle with low resistance to ticks [Boophilus microplus] (i.e. thse infested with many ticks) in Brahman-cross breeder groups (more than 65% Brahman content) were identified and culled. Removal of 16% of the cattle in a...

Abstract

The results of a survey in Queensland in 1977-78 on the control of cattle tick [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] indicated that tick-resistant cattle had been introduced for their heat- and drought-tolerance and their ability to grow more rapidly than European cattle, especially in the extensive grazing ...

Abstract

Regimes of pasture spelling [cf. RAE/B 59, 1481] combined with strategic dipping that have been used since 1967 against Boophilus microplus (ban.) on cattle on a farm in north Queensland are reviewed, and full details are given of the regime adopted from 1970 onwards. In this, the farm of 42 000...
