Abstract

This study was conducted to compare the features of farms on which the exposure of young cattle to tick fever organisms is sufficient to ensure that immunity is high and the risk of clinical disease is low (endemic stability) with those of farms on which exposure is insufficient to induce...

Abstract

In trials lasting 28 days, groups of 10-12 tick-infested cattle were treated with moxidectin injection (0.2 mg/kg body weight), moxidectin pour-on (0.5 mg/kg) or remained untreated. In trials lasting 140 days, cattle were treated with moxidectin injection, moxidectin pour-on or deltamethrin-ethion...

Abstract

In Queensland, Australia, 40 mid-lactation Holstein-Friesian cows, 100% lot fed, were assigned to 4 groups for 15 weeks. Two groups of 10 cows were infested each week with a gradually increasing number of B. microplus larvae, while the other 2 groups were maintained free of ticks. Milk yield and...

Abstract

Tick fever was first identified in Queensland in 1891, and various control measures have been introduced since then to control the spread of infection, including mineral oil dipping, arsenic dips and DDT. The state is now divided into designated areas either free from ticks, infected, provisionally ...

Abstract

Extracts prepared from the membranes of eggs (EM) and guts (GM) of B. microplus were used to immunize cattle, which were then infested twice with 20 000 larval ticks 1 week apart. EM antigens did not protect against challenge with ticks, despite high levels of anti-egg antibodies in the sera of the ...

Abstract

Gut membranes of the tick B. microplus were extracted using a low ionic strength buffer and the soluble antigens were used to vaccinate Hereford cattle. Following either experimental infestation with 40 000 larval ticks or exposure to field infestation (in Queensland, Australia), ticks from...
