Abstract

This book provides a history in Australia of 4 parasites of cattle, Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale (together causing 'tick fever'), and their vector Boophilus microplus. The majority of the research conducted to combat them since their introduction to Australia during the 19th...

Abstract

For more than 100 years, 'tick fever' (Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale) and B. microplus have caused tremendous financial loss to cattle producers around the world. Since Australia became infected with the disease and infested with its tick vector in the mid-19th century, a great ...

Abstract

A computer model was developed to simulate the processes involved in transmission of the cattle fever parasites Babesia bovis and B. bigemina between cattle and Boophilus ticks. The model of Babesia transmission was combined with a dynamic life history model for population dynamics of the vectors ...

Abstract

Transmission of Babesia bovis by Boophilus microplus (Can.) was studied in 4 breeding herds of European and Zebu X European cattle in Queensland under different levels of tick infestation in 4 pastures on one station. The observations consisted of weekly counts of female ticks on the cattle,...

Abstract

Strategic dipping and pasture spelling plus dipping were compared in Queensland with no treatment on Droughtmaster cows and their progeny over 5 years. Average monthly counts of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on the young cattle and their dams were 10 and 18, <1 and 2, and 56 and 112, for the 3 treatments, respectively. There was stable transmission of Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale to the progeny from the untreated cows. Strategic dipping, and pasture spelling plus dipping, seriously disrupted the transmission of B. bovis, and vaccination against this parasite is recommended. Pasture spelling plus dipping also interfered with the transmission of A. marginale and B. bigemina, but vaccination against A. marginale only is warranted. At 27-29 months of age, the young cattle in the strategic dipping group had...
