Abstract

Background: Results regarding the use of bovine somatotropin for enhancing fertility in dairy cattle are variable. Here, the hypothesis was tested that a single injection of a sustained-release preparation of bovine somatotropin (bST) during the preovulatory period would improve pregnancy success...

Abstract

The incidence of cases of myiasis in cattle caused by larvae of Cochliomyia hominivorax in the south-western USA suggested a failure in the sterile male method of suppression in 1972-76. Estimates of sterile mating frequencies among native females during field trials conducted in Curaçao, Florida,...

Abstract

The morphology of larval spines of Cochliomyia hominivorax was affected by larval substrate and geographic effects on variation. Spine morphology of individual larvae was used to determine criteria for discrimination analysis classification. Classification criteria for types of wounds and host...
