Abstract

Experiments were conducted on the induction of immunity to Babesia bovis in cattle with antigen extracted from erythrocytes infected with the parasite. Protection after inoculation with crude parasite-erythrocyte stroma mixtures was as strong as that induced by natural infection. B. bovis appears...

Abstract

A study of bovine parasitic gastro-enteritis (PGE) under extensive grazing conditions was carried out in Paraguay through a 2-year period. The investigation was divided into 2 sections: (i) a sequential field investigation of PGE in 2 beef herds; (ii) ecological observations on the free-living...

Abstract

Cattle born between July 1, 1979, and June 30, 1981, in the University of Florida Dairy Research Unit 200-cow milking herd, were tested monthly for 27 months for antibodies to bovine leukosis virus by agar-gel immunodiffusion with the glycoprotein-51 antigen. Of 473 live calves entering the study...

Abstract

A serological study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of bovine leukaemia virus (BLV) infection in dairy and beef cattle in Florida. Using the agar gel immunodiffusion test with a glycoprotein antigen, 47.8% of 7768 dairy cattle and 6.7% of 4911 beef cattle were found to have antibodies to ...

Abstract

Using the glycoprotein antigen immunodiffusion test, 75.8-82.7% of approximately 220 cows of a dairy herd in Florida had antibodies to bovine leukosis virus (BLV) between 1975 and 1977. Prevalence of BLV antibodies increased until 5 years of age, after which it remained at a steady level. A...
