Abstract

At the University of Queensland Veterinary School Farm, Droughtmaster [zebu X British type] cattle carried about ten times fewer engorging adult ticks than British cattle. British cattle had to be sprayed 4-5 times a year, but spraying of Drought-master cattle was not necessary. Based on numbers of ...

Abstract

The gradually accumulated knowledge concerning the relatively high resistance of zebu-type cattle and their crosses to a number of diseases and adverse environmental conditions is reviewed and related to recent findings which show that Drought-master cattle carry about ten times fewer ticks man ...

Abstract

In an experiment in the Townsville area only small differences in the number of ticks counted on Droughtmaster and Hereford calves were noted, but the Herefords were treated to control tick infestations on four occasions during one year, while the Droughtmasters were never treated. No differences...

Abstract

By 1963 the cattle population was 29,013 compared with 20,213 in 1961. The TICK ERADICATION programme against Boophilus microplus continued; in 1963, 23, 985 cattle were tick free, 2, 835 were under eradication treatment, and the remainder were infested or unknown. Deer and wild cattle are believed ...

Abstract

STREPTOCOCCAL SEPTICAEMIA in chickens was associated with stress (long transport, de-beaking, chilling). Bovine MASTITIS due to Streptococcus agalactiae is less common since the advent of antibiotics, but other bacteria have been isolated from clinical cases (Staph. aureus 388, Str. agalactiae 91, ...

Abstract

Several cases of bovine MASTITIS yielded cultures of Klebsiella type organisms. Testing for bovine TUBERCULOSIS was reduced, partly by the institution of biennial tests in areas where eradication is proceeding satisfactorily, and also because the dry season precluded handling cattle in poor...

Abstract

In studies on MASTITIS intramammary infusions of 100, 000 units of penicillin with Edicol Supra blue and green dyes showed that penicillin was excreted within 72 hours. Excretion of oxytetracycline was similar to that of penicillin, but streptomycin and chlortetracycline were excreted more slowly....

Abstract

Livestock research and extension is dealt with on pages 9-14. Of more than 2, 000 batches of ticks examined, 1037 were not resistant to acaricides, 626 had the Biarra type of resistance and 581 had the Ridgelands type. The possibility of the ingress of tick infestation to the adjoining areas of New ...

Abstract

MASTITIS due to Bact. coli and Bact. aerogenes was reported. STAPHYLOCOCCAL MASTITIS is still a problem and does not respond well to streptomycin, streptomycin-penicillin, aureomycin or dibromopropamidine. TUBERCULOSIS appears to be more prevalent in beef cattle than was anticipated. The policy of...

Abstract

II. A pasteurella was isolated from the milk of cows in one herd for over 12 months. Affected cows showed acute MASTITIS with ropy milk and there were severe systemic effects. Lancefield Group 0 streptococci were recovered from a herd in which 20 of 25 cows showed systemic effects and painful...
