Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is an infectious disease of cattle generally caused by Mycobacterium bovis, a bacterium that can elicit disease humans. Since the 1950s, the objective of the national bTB eradication program in Republic of Ireland was the biological extinction of bTB; that purpose has yet...

Abstract

Paratuberculosis or Johne's disease (JD), is a chronic infectious disease causing intractable diarrhea in cattle, which leads to less productivity, such as decreased milk yield, and lower daily weight gain. As a control measure against JD in cattle, national serological surveillance has been...

Abstract

There is limited knowledge of the true prevalence and distribution of coxiellosis in dairy and beef cattle populations in Australia. For this to occur, apparent prevalence estimates need to be reliably adjusted, accounting for diagnostic sensitivity (DSe) and diagnostic specificity (DSp) of the...

Abstract

A better comprehension of cattle contact structure can enhance the prevention of the transmission of infectious agents within livestock farms. Social network analysis has proven to provide a more accurate picture of social structures than traditional methods. In this study, we focused on...

Abstract

During the transition from late gestation to early lactation, dairy cattle are at increased risk for disease. Herd-level monitoring for disease risk involves evaluating multiple factors, including food intake, cow density, and biomarkers of nutrient metabolism. Biomarkers that are measured include...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to estimate heritability as well as genetic and environmental relationships between days to first heat (DFH), days to first service (DFS), interval from calving to conception (ICC), calving interval (CI) and number of inseminations per conception (NIS) with mastitis...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB), caused by Mycobacterium bovis, remains a persistent problem for cattle industries in endemic countries. The frequency, quality, and performance of tests, and the presence of wildlife reservoirs, have been identified as impediments to eradication. Recently, exposure to...

Abstract

Dairy cattle experience metabolic stress during the transition from late gestation to early lactation resulting in higher risk for several economically important diseases (e.g. mastitis, metritis, and ketosis). Metabolic stress is described as a physiological state composed of 3 processes: nutrient ...

Abstract

Johne's disease (JD) is a chronic enteric disease in cattle caused by Mycobacterium avian subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP). Eradicating JD is a difficult task due to the long incubation period of MAP, inefficient diagnostic tests, and delayed clinical signs. Effective control strategies can help...

Abstract

Johne's disease (JD) or paratuberculosis is an economically significant, chronic enteropathy of ruminants caused by Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP). Experimental models of JD in cattle are logistically challenging due to the need for long term monitoring, because the clinical...
