Abstract

The genetics of growth to 24 months, scrotal circumference (SC) at 24 months and temperament traits at 6, 12 and 18 months in 7 year groups of F2et seq., 1/2 Brahman, 1/2 Sahiwal, 3/4 Brahman and 3/4 Sahiwal bulls were investigated. Cattle tick (Boophilus microplus) and buffalo fly (Haematobia...

Abstract

Genetic parameters for growth, parasite resistance and heat tolerance in zebu-cross cattle in a tropical environment were estimated by restricted max. likelihood procedures using various forms of an animal model. Estimates of h2 for direct additive genetic effects for live weights at birth,...

Abstract

Two consecutive calf 'crops' consisting of 141 3/4 Brahman/1/4 shorthorn cattle (i.e. 29 steers and 40 heifers from 1981 and 30 steers and 42 heifers from 1982) were assessed for resistance to B. microplus in May, July and October 1983. Although the level of expressed resistance to artificial...

Abstract

The resistance to B. microplus of 4 herds of cattle with different Bos indicus (zebu) content (Hereford; 3/4 Hereford and 1/4 Brahman; 1/2 Hereford and 1/2 Brahman; and Brahman), grazed at each of 2 locations in the subtropics of Queensland was measured using artificial tick infestations at...

Abstract

The host resistance of Bos taurus (British) and B. indicus X B. taurus (Zebu X British) steers and heifers to cattle tick Boophilus microplus was measured monthly for 2.5 years in south-eastern Queensland. The cattle either grazed native pasture, with or without a supplement of lucerne pellets, or...

Abstract

A project that began in Queensland 20 years earlier is described in which Sahiwal bulls are crossed with Holstein-Friesian cows in order to combine the resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) exhibited by the Sahiwal breed of cattle with the milk-production capacity of the Holstein-Friesians in...

Abstract

The results are presented of a long-term study in Queensland in 1965-75 on the effectiveness and economic advantages of 2 methods of controlling ticks [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] and the pathogens they transmit (Babesia bovis and Anaplasma marginale) in Droughtmaster, a relatively tick-resistant...

Abstract

Breeding in Queensland for resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) was undertaken in a herd of Australian Illawarra Shorthorn (AIS) cattle in 1961--78 and in a herd of Brahman X AIS cattle in 1970--79; breeder cows and their progeny were assessed for tick resistance in October--January. Resistance ...
