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....

Abstract

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...
