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...
