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 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

An extension programme for the control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on cattle in south-eastern Queensland is described that was developed in response to problems caused by the potential failure of the traditional chemical control methods. Producers were surveyed to find out their opinions and...

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

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...

Abstract

Females of Boophilus microplus on British breed steers were counted regularly from July 1971 until January 1974 at Mt Tamborine, a cool and moist habitat in south-east Queensland. Larval production was estimated by exposing engorged individuals in pasture at regular intervals. Three generations of...

Abstract

Rectal and skin temperatures and resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) were studied in male calves of the Brahman (Zebu) breed, of Shorthorn × Hereford hybrids, and of hybrids of these crosses with Africander or Brahman cattle. In comparative artificial infestations of Hereford × Shorthorns (HS) ...

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...
