Abstract

Psoroptic mange, caused by Psoroptes ovis, is a problem on many Flemish farms where Belgian blue beef cattle are bred. Two intensive treatment schedules were evaluated on nine Belgian blue farms with a persistent mange problem. On farms 1 to 7, all animals were treated twice (with a...

Abstract

Besnoitia besnoiti is a protozoan parasite known to cause important economic losses in the cattle industry in Africa, Asia and the Mediterranean area. In the last years, (re-) emergence of the parasite has been reported in France, Germany, Hungary and Italy with in some cases, establishment of an...

AbstractFull Text

A harmonized sampling approach in combination with spatial modelling is required to update current knowledge of fasciolosis in dairy cattle in Europe. Within the scope of the EU project GLOWORM, samples from 3,359 randomly selected farms in 849 municipalities in Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Poland...

Abstract

Anthelmintic resistance is emerging in dairy cattle and this can result in a lack of effective control and production losses. Therefore, sustainable control strategies, such as targeted treatments (TT) and targeted selected treatments (TST), should be adopted by the industry. TT and TST approaches...

Abstract

In this case report, a presumably deliberate oral ivermectin intoxication is described on a veal farm, in the first week after arrival of the calves. All 330 calves, aged between two and four weeks, showed severe depression, sternal to lateral recumbency, tremor and headshaking. Of the calves,...

Abstract

The parasitic mite Psoroptes ovis causes important economic losses in Belgian Blue cattle. Because mange problems vary significantly between farms, a cross-sectional questionnaire survey and subsequent farm visits were performed to identify potential risk factors for P. ovis infections on Belgian...

Abstract

The impact of gastrointestinal (GI) nematode infections in dairy farming has traditionally been assessed using partial productivity indicators. But such approaches ignore the impact of infection on the performance of the whole farm. In this study, efficiency analysis was used to study the...

Abstract

Members of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter family (P-glycoproteins, Half-transporters and Multidrug Resistant Proteins) potentially play a role in the development of anthelmintic resistance. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible involvement of ABC transporters in...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the prevailing levels of infection with Ostertagia ostertagi in first-season grazing calves and related management factors in three European countries (Belgium, Germany and Sweden). A cross-sectional survey was performed in first-season grazing dairy ...

Abstract

Background: Gastrointestinal nematodes are an important cause of reduced performance in cattle. Previous studies in Europe showed that after anthelmintic treatment an average gain in milk production of around 1 kg per day/cow can be expected. However, (1) these studies have mainly evaluated...
