Abstract

Resistance to the cattle tick Boophilus microplus was assessed in heifer herds of various breeds of beef and dairy cattle in spring and summer in Queensland. All cattle had had tick experience before assessment. Resistance levels were determined as the percentage of larval ticks that failed to...

Abstract

Increases were recorded of lengths of larvae, nymphs and females of Haemaphysalis longicornis Neum. during feeding on cattle in Queensland, so that categories could be established for estimating the ages of ticks in natural populations. Most larvae and nymphs engorged in 4 days and females in 5 or...

Abstract

Raillietia, confined to the auditory meatus of mammals, is represented in Australia by 3 species. Supplementary descriptive notes are given on R. australis Domrow from a wombat and R. auris (Leidy) from cattle. R. manfredi sp.n. is described from the goat. A key to the females of the 5 known...

Abstract

The food of the cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis (Ardeola ibis)) in south-eastern Queensland was determined from boluses regurgitated by advanced chicks over 3 breeding seasons and from the stomach contents of 21 adults. They ate a wide range of animals, mainly Acrididae (including Patanga guttulosa ...

Abstract

The services that are provided at the Animal Research Centre, Yeerongpilly, Queensland, for controlling Boophilus microplus (Can.) on cattle in Australia are described, with special reference to the identification of ticks, testing cattle ticks for resistance to acaricides, the development of...

Abstract

Data are given on the studies on the cattle tick [Boophilus microplus (Can.)], the buffalo fly [Haematobia irritans exigua de Meij.] and dung beetles that are being carried out in the Craighoyle area at Belmont, central Queensland. The studies on the tick, which have been in progress since 1969,...

Abstract

The effect of Boophilus microplus on steers was investigated using three levels of infestation during summer 1980, autumn-winter 1980 and summer 1981. Mean losses in liveweight per engorged female tick during each of the three periods were 0.72, 0.47 and 1.52 g per tick respectively. The 1980...

Abstract

The host resistance of Bos taurus (British) and B. indicus X B. taurus (Zebu X British) steers and heifers to cattle tick Boophilus microplus was measured monthly for 2.5 years in south-eastern Queensland. The cattle either grazed native pasture, with or without a supplement of lucerne pellets, or...

Abstract

A project that began in Queensland 20 years earlier is described in which Sahiwal bulls are crossed with Holstein-Friesian cows in order to combine the resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) exhibited by the Sahiwal breed of cattle with the milk-production capacity of the Holstein-Friesians in...

Abstract

Models of the epidemiology of babesiasis were tested over a 5-year period in 4 breeding cattle herds under different regimes of tick control. It was concluded that in south-eastern Queensland, any form of tick control would exacerbate the situation, and that herds under conditions of reduced tick...
