Abstract

Trypanocide resistance remains a huge challenge in the management of animal African trypanosomiasis. Paucity of data on the prevalence of multi-drug resistant trypanosomes has greatly hindered optimal veterinary management practices. We use mathematical model predictions to highlight appropriate...

Abstract

Neospora caninum is a major pathogen of cattle and dogs, and neosporosis is widespread in five continents. In this study effect of experimental neosporosis on sperm quality of C57BL/6 mice in different days was investigated. Based on the results sperm concentration was not changed in infected...

Abstract

Our goal was to define a breeding objective for Brangus beef cattle in Brazil. Bioeconomic models were produced and used to estimate economic values (EVs). The scenarios simulated were typical full-cycle beef production systems that are used in tropical and subtropical regions. The breeding...

Abstract

A retrospective study was conducted on 1,178,329 cattle slaughtered at an eastern Australian abattoir between 2010 and 2018. The data were searched for records in which a diagnosis of hydatid disease was made by routine meat inspection and apparent prevalence was calculated. True prevalence of...

Abstract

Background: Gastrointestinal nematodes (GIN), liver flukes (Fasciola hepatica) and bovine lungworms (Dictyocaulus viviparus) are the most important parasitic agents in pastured dairy cattle. Endoparasite infections are associated with reduced milk production and detrimental impacts on female...

Abstract

Background: Human and animal African trypanosomiases impose a large economic and health burden in their endemic regions. Large strides have been made in the control of human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), yet these efforts have largely focused on the non-zoonotic form of the disease. Using a...

Abstract

In recent decades, there has been a rapid shift in livestock breeds used in developing countries, leading to a loss of local genetic resources. The introduction of high-performing livestock breeds might, however, offer opportunities to improve the income of poor livestock keepers. In southern Mali, ...

Abstract

The epidemiology of Babesia bovis was studied in terms of enzootic stability/instability and husbandry and abiotic factors influencing B. bovis transmission rate in northeastern Santiago del Estero province, Argentina. The area is of limited suitability for its only vector in Argentina, the tick ...

Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to analyze a new dynamical model pertaining to bovine Babesiosis transmission, and investigate its consequent morphology. We present and study various ramifications of our mathematical model for bovine Babesiosis spread, given, firstly, by a temporal system of...

Abstract

Neospora caninum is a cyst-forming coccidian which causes abortion in cattle, with a high economic impact globally. Vaccination is considered to be the most cost-effective strategy to control and prevent bovine neosporosis. However, there is no commercial vaccine available to date. To investigate...
