Abstract

Due to the intensification of dairy herds and the recognition of subclinical infections with a negative impact on production as disease, control of gastrointestinal (GI) nematodes in adult cows is becoming established in an increasing number of dairy herds. The objectives of this paper are to...

Abstract

Background: Worldwide, Fasciola hepatica infection causes high production losses in the livestock industry. Recently, studies have analyzed the association between measurements of F. hepatica infection intensity and herd management practices. The aim of the present study, the first of its kind in a ...

Abstract

Giardia duodenalis causes diarrhoea in humans and a wide range of mammals, including cattle. In cattle, the infection often has a chronic character. Infected calves may excrete cysts for several months, suggesting that Giardia is able to suppress and evade the immune response. In this study six...

Abstract

Nematode infections modulate the immune reaction of humans and livestock and may impair immune responses to non-parasitic antigens such as those present in vaccines. In this study, the relationship between antibodies directed against Ostertagia ostertagi, the economically most important nematode...

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

The objective of this study was to conduct a comprehensive field survey using a Dictyocaulus viviparus major sperm protein ELISA on bulk tank milk samples from Belgian dairy herds to gain insights in: (1) the sensitivity (Se) and specificity (Sp) of the test under field conditions; (2) the value of ...

Abstract

A retrospective study was carried out to assess the possibility of using daily weight gain in first-season grazing cattle (FSG) as a marker for treatment decisions to prevent parasite-induced losses caused by gastrointestinal (GI) nematodes. This is intended as a proof of concept for using targeted ...

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...

Abstract

In an effort to develop non-invasive methods for the diagnosis of Ostertagia ostertagi and Fasciola hepatica infection in beef cattle, this study was undertaken to evaluate antibody-detection ELISAs in meat juice samples and to investigate the associations between test results and carcass...

Abstract

During previous work Schistosoma antibodies and circulating antigens were detected at birth in the serum from some calves born to Schistosoma mattheei infected mothers. The objectives of the present survey were: (1) to investigate the proportion of calves, born to cows infected with S. mattheei,...
