Abstract

The effect of Boophilus microplus on steers was investigated using three levels of infestation during summer 1980, autumn-winter 1980 and summer 1981. Mean losses in liveweight per engorged female tick during each of the three periods were 0.72, 0.47 and 1.52 g per tick respectively. The 1980...
