Abstract

The use of disease resistant breeds is recognised as an economically realistic alternative to acaricide application and drug administration in tick and tick-borne disease control schemes. Although resistance is mainly associated with zebu breeds, studies carried out in The Gambia showed a higher...

Abstract

The authors report some tick species (Amblyomma variegatum, Boophilus annulatus, B. geigyi and Hyalomma sp.) collected between November 1990 and March 1991 on cattle from Guinea-Bissau. Blood smears showed the presence of Anaplasma marginale, Theileria mutans, Babesia bigemina and Sarcocystis sp....

Abstract

A field study was conducted in the Southern Region of Malawi to evaluate the immunization of improved dairy cattle against Anaplasma marginale, Babesia bigemina and B. bovis. Friesian crossbred heifers aged 5 to 54 months were given trivalent vaccines when they were maintained on government farms....

Abstract

Tick collection on one side of the body and whole tail was performed weekly over one year on 11 Gambian N'Dama and 11 Gobra zebu cattle to assess breed susceptibility to naturally occurring ticks. ELISA was used to assess the serological prevalence of Anaplasma marginale antigen and Babesia...

Abstract

In The Gambia, tick burdens estimated from cumulative tick counts were determined on N'Dama, zebu and F1 N'Dama×zebu crossbred cattle. N'Dama showed significantly fewer ticks than the zebu and F1 (P<0.001). A previous Trypanosoma congolense infection did not affect tick burdens on the 3 genotypes. Amblyomma variegatum ...

Abstract

A variety of haemoparasites occurs in ruminants of South America (12°00′N-56°00′S), but there is consensus on the significant economic impact of babesiosis (Babesia bovis and B. bigemina) and anaplasmosis (Anaplasma marginale). The tick vector for the Babesia spp. for the whole region is Boophilus...

Abstract

To determine the tick species hindering the cattle industry in Costa Rica and to assess infection rates of ticks with 3 important haemoparasite species, cattle were monitored during a period of 6 months (October 1992-March 1993). Four farms were located in the dry Pacific region of the canton of...

Abstract

A total of 101 cross European-Boran cattle (50 cows and 51 calves), on a farm in Nakuru District, Kenya, was immunized against theileriosis using Theileria parva lawrencei and T. parva parva stocks from another district of Kenya. The stabilates used were T. p. lawrencei (Mara III) used at 10-1.7...

Abstract

A survey of ticks on cattle, dromedaries, sheep and goats was carried out in 3 different climatic zones of the South Wollo region of Ethiopia. 14 372 ticks from the genera Amblyomma (60.43%), Boophilus (8.36%), Rhipicephalus (22.84%), Hyalomma (8.32%) and Haemaphysalis (0.05%) were identified from...
