Abstract

The prevalences of dermatophilosis and parafilariosis were monitored for one year in cattle in Sanyati, a semi-arid smallholder farming area in Zimbabwe. The prevalence of dermatophilosis differed (p<0.05) with season and among calves, cows, oxen and bulls. In bulls and cows, dermatophilosis lesions were localized mainly to the inguinal regions and between the front limbs. The prevalence and morbidity of dermatophilosis infection were significantly higher (p<0.05) during the wet season than in the dry season. No mortalities were recorded. The prevalence of parafilariosis was similar to that of dermatophilosis. Infection of cattle by these skin diseases was preceded by high infestation with the tick Amblyomma variegatum....

A dairy herd of 150 cattle (110 cows and 30-40 heifers of predominantly Friesland-Holstein breeding) in eastern Zimbabwe experienced an outbreak of abortions beginning in June 1988. The initial storm of 12 abortions in 8 days was followed by an ongoing abortion problem for the following 5 years,...

Abstract

The occurrence of endemic stability for heartwater is a controversial issue, because the means by which young cattle and other neonatal ruminants become infected and acquire immunity to the disease have never been adequately explained. A study was conducted in a heartwater-endemic area in...

Abstract

29 Mashona cows were allocated to 2 balanced groups and kept in separate paddocks at a stocking rate of 1 animal per 8 ha. One group received regular acaricide treatment to control bont (Amblyomma hebraeum) and other ticks with flumethrin pour-on preparation (Drastic Deadline) every 2 weeks. The...

Abstract

"Almost 100% of 52 cattle tested from the southern areas of Zimbabwe were found to have antibodies reactive with Rickettsia conorii compared with <30% of 120 cattle from the north. Steers artificially infected with R. conorii isolated from Amblyomma hebraeum were found to show no hematological or biochemical...

Abstract

The role of males of A. hebraeum (Malipati strain) in the transmission of C. ruminantium (Lemco and Nyatsanga isolates from Zimbabwe) was investigated. Transstadial (nymph to adult) and intrastadial transmission was demonstrated. Males transferred from live or dead hosts (sheep or goats) to live...
